A British man from Stevenage in Hertfordshire has gone viral for leaving the house disguised as a bush in an attempt to escape the government’s lockdown rules. Filmed by his neighbors, the man is seen sneaking around and trying to seem inconspicuous, even returning with his kids dressed as trash bags soon after. While it’s clear he only did this for a laugh, this is the kind of fun content we’re here for right now.
- Imagine looking out your window and seeing this! The man’s neighbor took the videos which she later uploaded to TikTok. “Next door neighbor has taken it to new extremes,” wrote @maddiedavies.x. “Trying his best not to get caught on lockdown…” The neighbor randomly crouches next to (real) bushes and even in a patch of grass trying to blend in, and he does a pretty good job.
- His kids crouching behind him in trash bags is pretty hilarious too. I wonder if it was trash day when they did this! If so, the bags would have blended right in, I’m sure.
- It was obviously a prank, though it’s unclear whether or not the neighbors were in on it. The man only did it to make his neighbors laugh while they were stuck indoors, and good for him. We can all use a little cheering up right now, and if it takes a neighbor dressing up as a bush and skulking around the neighborhood pretending he’s actually hiding from authorities, I’ll take it!
- The Stevenage man isn’t the only one putting a smile on people’s faces. A postman from Nottinghamshire has recently been cheering up the people in his town by delivering mail dressed in costumes ranging from Frozen‘s Anna to a wrestler, which is basically the best thing ever. Anything to keep people’s spirits up is fine by me!
