Despite unforgettable fashion choices and a rousing performance, Lady Gaga didn’t claim the crown for the most memorable moment at the MTV EMAs.

Instead, that honor went to Irish actor David Monahan who rushed the stage, completely naked, has Hayen Panettiere prepared to present Mother Monster at the awards show Sunday night.

Hopping, skipping, and jumping as he burst from backstage, Monahan freely flaunted his naughty bits for the audience—and cameras. However, the streaker showed just a touch of modesty once he reached the former Heroes star and covered himself before beginning a conversation with Panettiere.

According to the Huffington Post:

Panettiere was all too willing to give [Monahan] the microphone -- he professed his love for her canceled sci-fi show -- and she even asked him to join her for a pint after the show. Most people think it was a scripted moment, because, well, they seemed to be awkwardly exchanging planned lines and no one came to drag the man out.

Planned or not, this was one moment that won’t be forgotten anytime soon. After all, it isn’t every day Lady Gaga’s fashion choice of the evening is upstaged by another’s.
