[There was a video here]

The guy who tried to steal Germany's World Cup spotlight by streaking across the field during yesterday's final is actually Russian YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, also known as Vitalyzd.

Lebron James captured the most popular video of Zdorovetskiy briefly running shirtless on the pitch with "natural born prankster" painted on his body. The stunt was apparently intended as promotion for his upcoming movie with fellow YouTube prank star Roman Atwood, Natural Born Pranksters.

Vitalyzd has collected 7 million YouTube subscribers by pretending to rob an ATM, picking up women in a Lamborghini, and posing as a Russian hitman "in the hood."

On a scale of 1 to Soy Bomb, this attempt to crash a major event was about a 5-and-a-half.

Update: If you're disappointed that he didn't get fully nude here, there always the time he was (allegedly) on BangBus.
