A man using suction cups to climb Trump Tower is hardly the weirdest thing that has happened in the election cycle thus far, but it is definitely up there. The stunt, performed by a man cops are calling "Steve from Virginia," first seemed to be a bizarre protest of the Republican nominee, but it turns out that it may be just the opposite. In a cryptic video dated from the day before he started cupping his way up the 5th Avenue skyscraper, the alleged climber gave some answers as to why he intended to scale Trump Tower.

I guarantee it is in your interest to honor this request. Believe me, if my purpose was not significant, I would not risk my life pursuing it. The reason I climbed your tower was to get your attention. If I had sought this by conventional means, I would be much less likely to have success because you are a busy man with many responsibilities. I’ll get my contact information to your campaign so that if you are interested you can respond. As for anyone else who is watching, please help this video go viral so it gets to Mr. Trump and be sure to vote for Mr. Trump in the 2016 election.
