Rollen Stewart goofed around at major US sporting events in the 1980s, using a multicoloured wig and wacky antics to get his pro-Jesus slogans on TV. At first The Rainbow Man became a bit of a celebrity, but then he became a bit of a nuisance and people tired of him. Desperate for attention, he set off stink bombs at gigs to show non-believers how "God thinks this stinks." Then in 1992 he finally flipped and took several hostages at gunpoint to a hotel room. He's now in jail serving three consecutive life sentences. There's a documentary about him and there's also this old ESPN clip. I like his glasses.
