So was that the Numa Numa Guy chillin' on one of Chicago's buses? Gary Brolsma's Wikipedia bio says he lives in New Jersey, so has he traded in Gothamist for Chicagoist?

Or does one of our fellow Chicagoans simply resemble the guy who created a web meme by acting like a damn fool in front of his web cam?
