Here's a man caught on video climbing up the base of a statue, trying to make his way to the statue itself. It's unclear what his purpose or motivation for climbing the statue, but whatever it is - didn't matter.

After a few steps on his upward journey, the universe decides it's not this statues turn to be messed with and the man slips. He takes a hard tumble straight to the concrete.

Bob Seger might say the climber hit the ground, like a rock.

Is the guy a protester or activist? Maybe. At this time, who else would be climbing a statue other than someone thinking they can topple it?

Maybe he just wanted a selfie, at night, from someone recording far away..... yeah, that's it.
