Sepp Blatter’s press conference on Monday was surely an eventful one.
Ahead of a press event detailing the recent announcement of FIFA’s upcoming presidential elections, Blatter was the target of a prank by comedian Simon Brodkin, also known as Lee Nelson.
The British comedian snuck into the press conference and stated his displeasure, showering the FIFA president with money while Blatter called security to remove Brodkin from the premises.
The event is far from the first time Brodkin has caused an uproar with his hijinks, as the comedian has previously crashed a Kanye West performance and England’s flight to Brazil ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
FIFA announced Monday that an election will be held next February to determine the organization’s next president
Check out a video of the incident below:
Sepp’s like “We have to clean here first.” and everyone’s says “Oh, you mean the corruption. We get it. We get it.” And he’s like “No, this worthless fake stack of cash. Oh and I still think women players should wear shorter shorts.”
I think that was applause @0:20 seconds…
Well, that’s pretty dang funny! The comedian was like, “I made it rain for ‘Seppy Blatz’ “
interesting that he’s english and used USD in Switzerland….
Kind of a cheap way to get publicity.. But whatever…it’s at Sepp’s expense so I’m okay with it. Ha.
well worth the $50 or whatever that is!
More like $500. It was a good 6 inch stack.
That’s what she said.
He used fake bills.
As soon as he saw it wasn’t a stack of $100s he called for security to get the peasant out of there.
Blatter’s like “What? They come that small?”
Look at Blatter’s face as soon as that cash is tossed in the air. It’s priceless. He recognizes it’s all $1 bills and he’s not even remotely interested. Goes to show you he comes with a high price tag!!
Fitting tribute to Blatter. His legacy is now intact.
Is it possible that Sepp has never been to a Gentleman’s Club?
That was my thought as well. Did he just say that?
“Ladies and gentlemen, we have to clean here first…” Too bad the irony of that statement is lost on Sepp…
Nice gesture. But come on, Sepp won’t be tempted by that amount of money. It’s not even enough for him to buy lunch.
