You might have missed the most exciting part of Super Bowl LV, as it was cut from the broadcast. Late in the game, a streaker sprinted across the field in a flash of hot pink and exposed skin, avoiding numerous security guards and hurdling towards the end zone.
The unknown man slipped onto the field at the Super Bowl and ran toward midfield, drawing applause from the 25,000 fans in attendance.
The runner took off his shirt, waved it above his head, and kept sprinting across the field before slipping between two security guards and making a beeline for the end zone.
With more security closing in, he wisely slid at the 3-yard line. National radio announcer Kevin Harlan wasn’t phased by the display and called the impressive run as if it was part of the game.

The unidentified streaker wasn’t afforded the same protection as NFL quarterbacks. Guards piled atop him as he hit the grass, tied his hands, and escorted him into a nearby tunnel. He got another ovation as he exited the stadium.
