Everyone is looking for their 15 minutes of fame.

We all know Kanye West as the most infamous speech crasher in hip-hop, but the sports world experienced their own interruption this weekend at the close of the U.S. Open. During champion Webb SImpson’s victory speech, a brazen man walked in front of the TV camera and let out 2 bird-like calls. He was promptly removed from the scene but definitely made his mark.

The first-time winner acknowledged the crasher and told host Bob Costas that he hoped the “bird man” would be enjoying his jail cell.

”I want people thinking about saving trees,” said the unidentified man. “It was quite easy…. There was security there but everyone was caught up in the moment and they were distracted.”

Watch the ridiculous prank unfold below.

The “Bird Man” plans to strike again.
