On October 29th 2012, as Hurricane Sandy lashed the American east coast, most people were hunkering down indoors.
But not Jimmy Kruyne. He judged that he still had time for his afternoon jog, before the super-storm touched down. Being an athlete of impeccable taste, he picked his outfit with care. Swimming trunks, running shoes and, of course, a horse head mask.
Startled reporters were paused in the act of their serious business by his little run by. Suddenly there was laughter, not 'Frankenstorm', for this Halloween hurricane.
Yet it wasn't quite 'stir craziness' as the reporter concluded.
Jimmy had already been out to walk his dogs and he'd seen the news crew there. The knowledge brought about a certain premonition. Or, as he revealed his thoughts on Reddit later on, "Self, you're going to be on TV today."
Unfortunately, he didn't realize that he was being filmed until it was too late. Beneath the mask, his glasses were steaming up. His nonchalant jog was stopped by a moment of spectacle wiping and mask adjustment before, so he thought, he trotted into view.
Ready to go now, he didn't suss that he'd been on camera all along, until he dashed home and rewound his DVR to watch the relevant footage.
The stunt naturally left JImmy with some regrets, "I should have never taken the mask off. I broke the illusion."
