Thought you’d heard the last of the Bird Man’s crows? Think again! The Internet-famous U.S. Open video-bomber is now even Internet-famouser. His “real” identity is Jungle Bird and he’s an activist trying to raise global awareness of deforestation. And he even sells a line of T-shirts, cloth bags and travel mugs featuring his mug, presumably to fund that cause.
The “Stop Deforestation With Jungle Bird” slogan sort of sounds like it was made by some bootleg Chinese company. Or a drunk guy. Which would make sense, because cops said the so-called Jungle Bird was drunk when they yanked him off the course after Sunday’s prank. Did we even have to tell you?
We have to admit, this is pretty crushing news. We thought we witnessed one of those “Hey I’m drunk so this seems like a f***ing hilarious idea” moments, but it turns out it was just one of those “Hey, I need to sell these shirts and I’m drunk so this seems like a f***ing hilarious idea” moments. Oh well.
