‘Bird Call Man’ Pranks US Open Winner Webb Simpson
In true underdog fashion, 26-year-old Webb Simpson won the US Open yesterday in only his second appearance at the major tournament. But the win was just as notable for the nutty fan who interrupted Simpson’s interview with Bob Costas by making exceedingly loud birds calls. It may be the funniest and most creative video bomb yet.
As Simpson starts to explain his strategy, a man in a garish Union Jack knit cap steps in front of the camera and squawks like a bird before being pulled away by security. But Costas and Webb don’t let the bizarre display unnerve them.
“Always something to spice matters up,” said Costas, shaking his head in disbelief.
“Yeah, enjoy the jail cell, pal,” laughed Webb.
Not that we’re experts, but the man’s bird calls sound spot-on, by the way.
