Sepp Blatter Pranked At Fifa

Tue Jul 21, 2015 12:26 pm

I thought this was hilarious.

At the start of a major FIFA press conference, UK prankster Simon Brodkin (aka Lee Nelson) showered Sepp Blatter with fake money as a bribe for awarding the 2026 World Cup to North Korea.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-33591332



Aside from him asking "Where is my security?", after Brodkin was escorted out, Blatter told the assembled press "Ladies and Gentlemen, we have to clean this first." I took that to mean the money needed to be laundered!

It would make sense if Blatter's first reaction to a bunch of cash was to try to launder it...

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Blatter makes Roger Goddell look alike a saint in comparison and that's pretty damn hard to do. FIFA is so corrupt is makes me feel bad about watching soccer knowing I am supporting essentially a bunch of crooks.

Indeed. I can't help laughing every time I see the clip.

   The still is even better than the video!

Are the bills real? It seems they are. The impact is enhanced even more.

If I had my way, that image would be used to illustrate any item relating to Blatter or FIFA. It's just SO appropriate.
