As Hurricane Sandy’s gale-force winds escalated Sunday afternoon, so did something in Michael Bloomberg’s pants.

The New York City mayor appeared to have an erection during a press conference about the impending storm, Vanity Fair’s Juli Weiner (last name purely coincidental) first noted.

Michael Bloomberg erection Hurricane Sandy press conference

Either Bloomberg gets super excited about emergency preparedness, his personal area was caught on-camera at a weird angle, or he once had a particular fondness for a woman named Sandy.

It’s great to see that the 70-year-old still has it going on, but it’s also a little disconcerting that he was so — happy? — during a televised press conference about a natural disaster.
