It's the mystery gripping D.C.

Who was that man eating pizza in the middle of a live broadcast during the Michael Cohen hearings in Washington Wednesday?

"Hallway Pizza Guy," as he's been dubbed on social media, rose to viral fame online as he chowed down on a slice while in the background of a live CBSN shot. He was in line to get into the hearings early, which may explain why he was so hungry by the afternoon break.

The pizzeria he ordered from, &pizza, which has a spot inside the Capitol, wasted no time capitalizing on the attention, making a gif out of the moment and listing the type of pizza he ordered. The chain is also using his face on its Twitter account. 

"It has been a lot of fun for the company, it has been a lot of fun for our customers and probably only a 24-hour thing, so we are going to make the most of it," Michael Lastoria, &pizza Capitol Hill manager, told Inside Edition.
