Aberdeen Horse Man Unmasked

A man with a horse head that became an internet phenomenon last week has finally been unmasked as a Youtube user by the name of TheHumanHorse.

The Horse Boy, as he calls himself, has been on the popular video streaming website since December 2007 and didn't have a big following. He describes himself as living in the centre of the field, lives in Ascot and is a retired racing horse.

Despite being featured in the Huffingtonpost and the BBC, his number of channel views (opens in new tab) and subscribers have barely changed. But things may change as he has just uploaded a new 47s video of himself to show that he was still around.

Horseboy also added that he would be coming to a garden "near you soon". Previous videos of him (it??) includes parodied songs of the the "birdie song" and "Crank Dat".
