Robbing a restaurant of its cash is one thing. Robbing a restaurant of its cash in nearly your birthday suit is quite another.

Exactly that happened last week in northeast China, though, according to CNN.

In surveillance video obtained by Chinese state-run CCTV, the suspect can be seen running into a restaurant in just his underpants and taking money from a cash register.

The suspect, a new waiter at the restaurant, also had plastic around his head. He told authorities that he needed money because he had an emergency.
