A man walked around a Fayetteville, Arkansas, Home Depot store on Sunday wearing running shoes and black tights, witnesses said, "like it was the most normal thing in the world."
The man, who has not been identified, entered the store around 10:20 a.m. according to surveillance footage.
"Just waltzed right in like he owned the place," said Gustav Klimt, the store greeter working the door that day. "Wearing these skintight pants."
Shoppers and store employees said the man, who didn't use a shopping cart, headed for the hardware aisle, staring at the shelves for several minutes before leaving with two boxes of flat-head wood deck screws, before moving on to browse weather stripping and finally to the paint section, where he picked up two tubes of polyurethane concrete crack and masonry sealant.
During the whole time, witnesses were quick to underscore, he was wearing tights.
"Like it was no big deal," said Paul Klee, a contractor there that morning to pick up some gypsum board. "Like he does this sort of thing every day."
He shrugged. "I don't know, man."
Klee and others noted that the man didn't appear agitated or disturbed, and in fact went out of their way to note that he was "real nice seeming" and even smiled at a few of his fellow customers.
"Didn't seem to mind that everyone could see his... you know," said Georgia O'Keeffe, the employee who eventually rang up the man's purchases.
"He paid cash," she added. "Took it out of his tights. Don't ask me from where exactly."
Rumors that the man was later seen buying produce at a nearby Safeway, still wearing his tights like it was totally natural, could not be immediately confirmed.
