If you spent any time on social media throughout the afternoon on Wednesday, you likely witnessed posts about a man in New York City and his suction cups.
That’s because that man is climbing Trump Tower with simply four suction cups and a backpack.
No one is really sure what is going on or why the man decided to begin climbing the tower, but it has captured the attention of the nation. Who would have guessed a man’s impromptu climb up Trump Tower would be the most watched event during the Summer Olympics?
Well, if you haven’t seen video of the incident, you can watch live below.

You have to love the internet. You never know what is going to go viral on any given day. And you definitely never know when a man scaling a building with suction cups is the hero you need.
Best of luck on the climb and get down safely.
