Lukas Bates felt it was necessary to run the London Marathon in a Big Ben costume.

Darren Rovell shared a video of Bates on Twitter dressed up as the famous clock tower Sunday, and it’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever seen. Even if he did manage to finish under four hours, it’s still crazy how hardo of a move this is. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Save me all the garbage about how cool and awesome this is. Puke. This is just a desparate cry for attention.

Is this really how far the British have fallen as a nation? They now let people run in races in costumes? Sickening. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

I guess it’s just another example proving the Revolutionary War was a good idea. We went to the moon. England lets a dude run around in a Big Ben costume. You tell me which nation is more impressive. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

I have no doubt you guys are going to jump into the comments to tell me I’m an idiot, not fun, have no sense of humor and so much more. I can already see it coming. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

I don’t care. Sometimes, the man who stands for what’s right must be willing to stand alone. Let the hatred flow towards me. Let it flow. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

In this country, we own guns, drink beer and win Super Bowls. In England, you can run around in costume as a grown man and people will clap for you.

Go ahead and hate me, but I’m not going to apologize for calling this a clown move. That’s exactly what it is. I think Kenny Powers summed up my thoughts the best.
