Police are seeking the whereabouts of a naked man filmed strutting around the middle of a busy tube carriage in London.
In the video, the man can be seen swinging around the pole in the middle of the carriage, gyrating and, at one point, bending over.
The man has so far not been identified but his face – among other things – is clearly visible in the clip, which was posted on Twitter by @daniellavieco.
“Typical commute back home on the Victoria line,” she wrote alongside the video. “what has London come to omg.”
WARNING: THE FOLLOWING VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC, FULL-FRONTAL, MALE NUDITY:

The man was travelling north on the Victoria line from Brixton and it’s unclear as to whether said naked individual was intoxicated at time, forced to perform the dance after losing a bet, or simply just a weirdo.
In any case, it’s been met with a mixture of amusement and revulsion on Twitter, where the clip has been retweeted over 1,300 times.
Awful behaviour , arrest him. Not funny x

So much for the Victoria line being the best line ? I don't think I'll ever hold the poles again ??

However, the unidentified male could yet face criminal charges over the incident, with a British Transport Police spokesperson confirming the video was being investigated.
“We are aware of video footage, posted on Twitter, showing a man dancing naked on a Victoria Line Tube train,” they said.
“The footage is currently being reviewed with an effort to identify the man seen dancing.
“Anyone who was on board the train at the time of the incident is urged to get in touch as soon as possible.
“This can be done by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 198 of 06/11/2017.”

It sounds like the net could be closing on on this guy. He may want to travel around in some sort of disguise – wearing some clothes would be a good start.
