Like circus clowns, streakers are not a good kind of funny. They sometimes provoke laughter, sure, but it is not the laughter of true hilarity; rather, it's an awkward, uncomfortable laughter, the laughter of being informed that the nurse at the clinic was just kidding when she told you you had gonorrhea. Running into a plexiglass wall and falling down, however, has been scientifically proven to be hilarious.
Generally, the practice of streaking is reserved for major sports events, when a large number of people will be watching -- this guy was apparently satisfied with a more intimate setting. His plans, however, were thwarted -- the last time we saw anyone looking that ridiculous while running into a glass wall it was Justin Bieber.
