In this incredible clip which has been shared millions of times on Snap Chat and Whatsapp networks, the unidentified male appears crouched down and hiding while starkers.
Filmed by an unknown neighbour who entitled the clip with the philosophical phrase “But I live or I?” shows the man bending down underneath a window.
As it closes in it reveals that the window of the apartment, he appears to have come out of, is open and suggests he is trying to conceal a secret.
Hilariously rather than call the Pompiers or alert the police, the neighbours act nonchalant at the unexpected sight.
And they appear to be giggling hysterically as the man clings on for his life completely naked, after he was apparently caught in an unknown act.
A source told Express.co.uk: “There’s so much speculation as to what he was up to!
“Some say he decided to take a walk on the wild side, others say he was showing off to friends while others say he might well have been hiding from someone.
“No matter what happened this is not something you see every day.”
Mystery surrounds the incident which appears to have been shared online is said to have been possibly recorded in Paris.
Speculation is currently rife over whether the man, elevated many stories above ground, could in fact be a naked free runner who discarded his clothes.
The sport is a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course and is popular in France.
However, free running is usually carried out fully clothed.
