A shirtless jogger wearing a horse mask galloped into Internet infamy Monday morning when he ran through a Washington, D.C., news crew's live shot during Hurricane Sandy.

"I guess there's an attitude with storms -- you can either be scared and hide in your house, or you can have a sense of humor about it," reporter Megan McGrath said.

Jimmy Kruyne is the jogger behind "Shirtless Horse Man," tweeting that morning "The news crew is down the block, I'm thinking horse mask and swimming trunks?"

A video clip of the live shot went viral nationally in just 90 minutes.
