Shirtless runner is interviewed on TV, reveals he's single, cue the sound of the Internet exploding
Ever since Teresa Mannion made us sit up and take notice of weather reporting, we wondered what meteorological story would be next to capture the world's imagination.
Step forward Ethan Renoe, a topless runner who was interviewed by Chicago television station WGN TV as he went for a jog in the lashing rain.
So this just happened. Enjoying the weather, are you, "Ethan"?Posted by WGN TV on Sunday, 13 December 2015
A somewhat bewildered reporter, Tahman Bradley, asked Renoe why he was running in terrible weather in a semi clad state.
"Too wet for a shirt," Renoe told the reporter. "I love running in the rain."
Athletic Renoe then happened to casually mention that he was single, leading to a deluge of comments on the television stations Facebook page.
The man dubbed the 'shirtless wonder' by the U.S. media paid a visit to the station's studio today, where he shared his surprise at the reaction of the video interview.
Renoe said that people have been commenting, talking about his looks and asking for a date.
"It's really been crazy.
"I have about 900 friend requests (on Facebook) right now," he laughed.
