A man strolled down central London’s most popular shopping street on Friday wearing nothing but a face mask as a sort of makeshift g-string, leaving passerbys astounded, amused and shocked.
As the man walked nonchalantly along Oxford Street, naked except for the light blue face mask over his groin, some took pictures on their phones while others simply stared in awe.
The man was later identified as 32-year-old Tim Shieff, a former “Ninja Warrior UK” contestant.
Shieff’s stunt was designed to mock new coronavirus laws which make the wearing of face masks compulsory, a move he claims is “a step too far.”
