A random guy's video of the World Cup streaker went viral. That random guy was LeBron James.
Also, no one realized the security guards were actually Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.
You know how the Internet is cool because it allows you to chat with billions of strangers, and how it's possible for one of those anonymous nobodies to get a moment of glory by sharing a perfectly-timed video with everyone? Well, that anonymous nobody turned out to be very famous somebody LeBron James this weekend, when he happened to post to Instagram a video of the World Cup streaker (I'm using the term loosely. Most-viewed underwear model in history would be more accurate) who ran on the field during the final match between Germany and Argentina.
And that anonymous nobody who ran on the field? It was YouTube somebody Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, a Russian comedian with 6.5 million subscribers for his prank videos, and 211,000 Twitter followers. So, pretty much no one involved in this story that briefly touched the entire globe was actually a normal citizen of the Internet.
Yet I'm still sure my next tweet will totally make me famous.
