He is amazing after all.
What would possess a guy to dress up at Spiderman and, apparently, surf during one of the most dangerous and deadly hurricanes in history?
But in this case the guy under the suit says he did it to add a sort of levity about the Hurricane Irene situation. He wanted to let people know that all isn’t so bad.
Whether he’s right or not remains to be…whatever. He’s an idiot. Several deaths and billions of dollars of damage later he’s just a jackass in a Spiderman costume on the news. But it is kinda funny though.
