There’s been another Jungle Bird sighting in San Francisco.

The infamous videobomber from the 2012 U.S. Open at Olympic Club resurfaced again Wednesday when he crashed a soccer match at AT&T Field. Late in the friendly between Juventus and Everton, Jungle Bird strolled onto the pitch and attempted a penalty shot, which unfortunately went directly to keeper Tim Howard.

On his Facebook page, Jungle Bird (real name Andrew Dudley) explained his kick thusly: “btw, just to set the record straight, I couldn’t have scored because I would have put Juventus one up.” He added a winking emoticon.

At the game he was apparently protesting the illegal deforestation in the Congo. 

Hey, give The Bird credit for this: He is an equal-opportunity party crasher. He has made appearances at golf tournaments, a Notre Dame-Navy football game and, now, a soccer match.
