‘Too Wet to Wear a Shirt’ — Runner in Rain-Soaked Chicago Goes Viral

WGN-TV in Chicago was doing a live report on the unseasonably warm and wet weather in the area, when a shirtless runner named Ethan Renoe was stopped in the middle of his 5-mile run along Lake Michigan and interviewed.

The clip immediately went viral, getting more than 1 million views on WGNtv.com in just 12 hours (Ethan telling the viewing audience that he is single probably contributed to this). Since then, WGN has brought Ethan back to the airwaves to discuss this crazy instant-celebrity he gained just from going for a run in the rain without his shirt on.

Never change, Internet.
