Let me get this straight. There is no such thing as an “ideal theme park ride to streak on,” but there is one that you should never even consider streaking on, and that is Disney’s “It’s A Small World.” You just set yourself up to be eviscerated when you do that.
And that’s exactly what a 26-year-old man did at Disneyland California earlier this week when he stripped down to his birthday suit and ran loose (literally) through the beloved water ride. You probably thought the creepy song getting stuck in your head was the worst thing that could happen on that ride, didn’t you?
The young man was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and accused of being under the influence (potentially a controlled substance). He was also taken to a nearby hospital as a precautionary measure after he was taken into custody.
Disney is viewed as the happiest place on Earth, but I’m sure there were a lot of parents that weren’t happy at all with what their kids might have seen at the iconic ride. The video below shows the man jumping in and out of the water (as the magical music ironically continues to play). It also shows the authorities dragging the man out of the theme park and doing a terrible job of covering the streaker up.
Take a look:

Someone that was there at the ride when the strange events happened on November 26th posted a censored picture of the streaker, presumably breaking the news to the “large world” that the “small world” had been stripped (streaking pun intended) of its innocence.
The post, which has been viewed over 3 million times, reads:
“I AM ON SMALL WORLD AND THERE WAS A STREAKER, I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING.”
