It’s also not the first time JiDion and clippers have appeared hand in hand at a sporting event. Earlier this year, he was trimmed during the fourth quarter of an NBA game between the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.

American tennis legend John McEnroe couldn’t believe what he saw as JiDion sat there getting a trim while wearing a Louis Vuitton cape.

“It seems like a weird time to do that,” the man they call “Superbrat” said in the commentary. “Now we’ve seen everything.”

@SportsCenter posted a video of JiDion getting a haircut.

For fans, JiDion will bring back memories of fellow international sports prankster Jarvo who lined up with the All Blacks for the national anthem last year. JiDion previously got a trim at a university lecture from another barber. An earlier video on his channel shows JiDion being removed from Wimbledon for using an air horn, cheering loudly and waving his arms during rallies.

US Open security staff were not so impressed after his latest incident. Some onlookers described it as the most random thing ever seen at the US Open, while others instantly recognised the well-known prankster, American YouTuber JiDion. “When someone saw it, security went to the two individuals. They were escorted out of their seats and then off the grounds for disruption of play,” US Tennis Association Brendan McIntyre said, adding, “There's a first time time for anything.”
