(SARASOTA) — You already know where this is going.

A Florida Man went au naturel on the back of a semi-trailer as he scurried through highway lanes, ensuing chaos and blinding drivers in the process.

Traumatized Sarasota locals had captured footage of the spectacle on Interstate 75 on June 30 at around 4 p.m.

In true Florida style, the nudist effectively displayed his brute and superhuman-like abilities, in some ways more than one, to transferring cars.

Law enforcement took the man into protective custody.

He was then transferred to a hospital for a psychological analysis.

“While we don’t know what may have precipitated this man’s actions, it’s apparent that he was exhibiting abnormal behavior,” said Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Douglas Johnson. “This was a very dangerous situation for the man and the motorists traveling the interstate at that time. We’re thankful we were able to resolve the situation safely.”
