Rick Bayless, the celebrity chef behind popular campus sandwich spot Tortas Frontera, is frolicking about his restaurant completely nude and covered head-to-toe in his signature housemade guacamole, according to the Department of Public Safety. 

Bayless, widely known for his Frontera restaurant chain and the PBS series “Mexico: One Plate at a Time,” is prancing about the Arch building with his unclothed body smeared in the avocado-based dip.

A UPennAlert was sent to the University community once it was reported that Chef Bayless, a pioneer of upscale Mexican cooking in the United States, was gamboling about au naturel, maniacally raving about cotija cheese.

People are advised to avoid the scene until further notice. Police are on the scene, trying to get a hold of Bayless but struggling to get a good grip on him because of all that slippery guacamole.
