A shareholder of Daimler, Wilm Diedrich Mueller who is a well-known prankster, asked for his right to be naked at the company’s AG’s annual meeting.

Mueller has sparked such hilarious moments in the past for pranks at gatherings at companies ranging from Allianz SE to Bayer AG.

At the Daimler AGM, he used his allotted speaking time to criticize the board because he hadn’t been invited to appear in “species-appropriate attire.” In other words: Naked!

“I’m grateful you didn’t already put into action your understanding of species-appropriate attire,” Daimler Chairman Manfred Bischoff responded.

German annual meetings can be freewheeling events as each shareholder has the right to pose questions to management, said Bloomberg.

Last year, two Daimler shareholders battled at the buffet over complimentary sausages, diverting attention from record results at the world’s biggest luxury-car maker. Police were called to calm things down after one man began packing away multiple sausages.

About 6,000 people attended Daimler’s gathering at Berlin’s CityCube convention center on Wednesday.
