Traveling is often for stressful and that anxiety is compounded on holiday weekends like the one coming up, so the local news usually tries to cash in on these fears with a few interviews with vacationers trying to get through the long airport lines and make it to their weekend getaways.

This year New York’s ABC-7 got a pleasant surprise in the guise of a taller, and more dapper, than average passenger by the name of Walt “Clyde” Frazier.

Frazier seems composed as always despite recent TSA troubles that have led to extra long lines, telling the news crew that he arrived at the airport with plenty of time to navigate the checkpoints and still get away to whatever stylish destination he is headed to.

Also “Walt Frazier: Traveler” sounds like the name of a very entertaining PBS show.
