An anti-Trump protester jumped into a fountain and started dancing while screaming "I'm Nevada" during a US election protest.
The man stripped off and hurled himself into the Washington Square Park fountain as hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of New York City.
Crowds gathered for the "Donald Trump is Done" rally which resulted in chaotic scenes with little social distancing.
The evening saw around 300 people march, combining protests about Black Lives Matters and the US election, reported The New York Post.
As the man danced in the fountain he could be heard shouting "I'm Nevada" as crowds chanted "USA! USA!".
Protesters left the park at around 9.30pm on November 6 and wandered through the neighbourhoods of the Lower East Side and Greenwich Village, swearing at police.
The night passed without the violence seen in previous days, such as Wednesday when three women were arrested on charges that they punched and kicked police officers, and Thursday when a man allegedly attempted to strangle a cop with a length of chain.
Instead, the group last night wound up in Chelsea, where many of the protesters did the Cha-Cha Slide before dispersing without incident.
Some stragglers back at Washington Square were ejected after the park’s midnight closing and there was at least one arrest.
It has since been announced that Biden has beaten Trump to become the 46th president of the United States.
The news this evening comes after days of uncertainty as election officials sorted through a surge of postal votes that delayed the processing of some ballots.

Biden crossed 270 electoral college votes with a win in Pennsylvania.
However, Trump has already said that the election is not over and is threatening further legal action on ballot counting.
Trump pointed to delays in processing the vote in some states to allege with no evidence that there was voter fraud and to argue that his rival was trying to seize power – an extraordinary charge by a sitting president trying to sow doubt about a bedrock democratic process.
Biden, in a statement, said he was humbled by the victory and it was time for the battered nation to set aside its differences.
“It’s time for America to unite. And to heal,” he said.
“With the campaign over, it’s time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” Biden said. “There’s nothing we can’t do if we do it together.”
