NFL commentator Kevin Hanlon has just become the internet’s favourite narrator.
In a lacklustre opening round game between LA Rams and the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, Hanlon inthralled fans with his hilarious play-by-play call of a streaker invading Levi’s Stadium.
“Hey somebody has run out on the field, some goofball in a hat,” started Hanlon.
“The guy is drunk, but there he goes.”
The streaker’s 15 seconds of fame grew legs as Hanlon’s epic commentary was shared thousands of times across social media platforms.
The original call was on radio, for Westwood One, but was later synched with actual match footage.
ESPN did not broadcast the streaker’s escapade, but the NFL later uploaded the call on its YouTube account, despite its condemnation of the act.

The streaker narration was arguably the most exciting part of an underwhelming game that saw the 49ers trounce the Rams 28-0.
