(Scroll down for video) A man who wanted to become a famous comedian, thought it would be funny to rob a bank and give away the money while he was naked.

However, the only thing 25-year-old Alexander Sperber became famous for is his arrest.

Police in Florida, were called to a bank in Fort Lauderdale, after the young man came in, made a motion with his hand to indicate that he had a gun, and he demanded money.

The teller handed Sperber a bag of money that contained $4,700.

As soon as he left, a bundle of red dye exploded, leaving stains on his clothes and left wrist.

Sperber then removed all of his clothes and he began running naked in the streets while throwing the money around.

According to court documents, after his arrest, Sperber told FBI agents that when he woke up in morning, he “decided to rob a bank and run naked down the street while throwing the money to people in order to begin his career as a comedian.”

Sperber, who graduated from Lehigh University and is getting his master’s degree at Florida Atlantic University, has no prior criminal history. He now faces 10 years in prison.
