VIDEO: Streaker runs wild on Rihanna’s 7-7-7 tour plane

Let's go streaking!

Rihanna’s 777 tour — in which she’s traveling to seven cities in seven days, with a plane full of fans and journalists — reached London Monday morning, the second to last stop. But there was no sign of the superstar on the plane from Berlin. “Just one quote,” chanted desperate reporters, begging Rihanna to appear.

Then things got a little “Lord of the Flies. Australian Tim Dormer, a radio presenter at Nova in Sydney, decided if he wasn’t going to get a story, he’d become one: After 3am, he suddenly burst from the toilet – completely naked. With his long curls bouncing, he made a quick tour of economy class wearing nothing but his birthday suit. The audience cheered.

Since Rihanna wasn’t around to talk to anyone, we asked the streaker:

Q: What were you thinking?

A: I was bored. It was three in the morning and we were on a plane and we’ve been on a plane for the past five days. I thought it would be fun. And it wasn’t an easy task either; I had to dive over people.


Q: Did you plan the whole thing?

A: No, I was just in the bathroom and thought it would be a fun thing.


Q: How many will see this on YouTube, do you think?

A:  Five maybe? My mum, my dad, my gran, my boss and hopefully Rihanna.

Q: Did you run all the way up to her?

A: No, I didn’t get that far.

Q: How do you find the trip so far?

A: I’m having the time of my life. I saw her the first day and I see her on stage every night.

London, lock your doors.
