He’s been described as "eccentric," per The Associated Press (h/t Daily Mail), but Henrik Harlaut is merely a humble purveyor of the Wu. 

The Swedish skier was preparing for a run down the slopestyle course at Sochi on Thursday when he noticed cameras focusing in for a closer look.

Instead of waving to friends and family, Harlaut took the face time as an opportunity to make the most important public service announcement in Winter Olympics history. He reminded the world that “Wu-Tang is for the children.”

The skier later reiterated his announcement on Twitter.

If Harlaut’s announcement sounds familiar, it's because he was echoing a special moment in Wu history when ODB stormed the stage at the 1998 Grammy Awards. The rapper took the moment to remind the music industry that he, Ghostface Killah and the rest of the crew make music for the kids. 

As if his Wu-Tang PSA wasn't enough entertainment, the Swedish skier also managed to nearly lose his pants on his run, as highlighted in the Mail report

Yep, it was a weird, awesome day on the slopes for Harlaut. He might’ve finished sixth overall, but he’s No. 1 in the hearts of all the children out there living life and just trying to protect their necks.

It’s about time the Wu came through the Olympics.
