CHICAGO (KRON) — Here’s a tip, fellas … if you’re looking to give your love life a little boost: take off your shirt, go out for a jog, and hope there’s a news crew nearby.
On Sunday night, Ethan Renoe decided to go out for a run around Lake Michigan during a rain storm. Despite the December deluge, the weather was unseasonably warm, so, Renoe removed his shirt and hit the streets.
WGN-TV reporter Reporter Tahman Bradley was doing a live weather report from the lake shore when he spotted the half naked jogger.
“Dude, where is your shirt, man?,” Bradley asked.
“It’s a great day for a run, so, too wet to wear a shirt,” Renoe says.
“I love to running in the rain, and I’m also single.”
WGN posted Bradley’s weather report and has since garnered more than a million views, and hundreds of favorable comments.
“I need to do more running,” one female fan wrote.
“That’s it. I’m moving to Chicago,” said another.
Renoe, a single straight male from Colorado, visited WGN Monday to talk about the hundreds of female admirers trying to reach out to him on social media.
“It’s really been crazy,” Renoe said. “I have about 900 friend requests (on Facebook) right now.”
WGN’s viral video is possibly the most hilarious “jogger in inclement weather” clip since the “jogger who slipped on ice” video that went viral some time ago.
