Hundreds gathered in reception to see if the Naked Horse would carry out his promise and streak through floor TWO of the Robinson Library at 4pm today.

But alas, he never showed.

Earlier today an anonymous finalist declared that as he had finished uni today, he would don a horse mask and do a naked sprint through ground level.

Yik Yak erupted, and at its peak, the offending Yik Yak had 957 upvotes.

By 4:10pm, the dream was over and angry Yakkers took to the app to vent their distress:

Two onlookers told the Tab that they were outside and the Horseman, fully clothed and without a mask, approached them.

They said: “he showed us his phone with the Yik Yak on it. We tried to convince him to go through with it but he just laughed, got on his bike and cycled home”.
