When Webb Simpson was expressing himself to Bob Costas following his win at the 2012 U.S. Open, he was cut short not by a dramatic pause, but rather by a grown man squawking on national television. That guy is better known as 'Jungle Bird' and he crashes events in order to spread awareness about deforestation.
While Simpson seemed none too pleased with the eccentric protestor (he was heard saying "Enjoy the jail cell, pal," as officials carried him off), he ended up posting this picture, which poked fun at the situation.

Despite being hauled off by police officers, the USGA opted not to press charges against Jungle Bird. Jungle Bird posted the following message to his facebook page:
"Congratulations to Webb Simpson on winning the US Open and a big thank you for being a good sport!"
