As Randy Newman warned us years ago, you should beware of the naked man. In London, they should beware of THIS naked man, who decided to ride a statue in the London chill.

The man, who was not identified, stripped down in the chill of late-November London, and then climbed onto the statue of a 19th century duke in the Whitehall district, the seat of British government.

This went on for about three hours before he was finally lured down. As you may have guessed, he was taken to be assessed for mental illness.

And there's video!
