A man who likes to put a watermelon on his head before his daily commute has caused a stir in China.
The man has been nicknamed the ‘watermelon brother’ by web sleuths who are trying to figure out the mystery man’s identity.
One commuter told the Beijing Morning Post he was freaked out by the man who loves to put on the hollowed-out fruit helmet and reported him to police.
“It was so scary last night when I was on the metro,” he said.
“This guy was just hanging around on the train wearing a watermelon mask with a beer bottle … apparently he was totally drunk.”
“I was scared by this watermelon brother too,” said another passenger. “I posted some pictures of him on Weibo.”
Beijing Metro Police questioned the man after being alerted to his location by passengers and subway staff.
