BLATTER GETS TROLLED
When FIFA’s president Sepp Blatter (above) held a press conference in Switzerland on Monday night, he didn’t expect it to be hijacked by British comedian Simon Brodkin. Brodkin, who was playing a character named Lee Nelson, gained access to the conference and pro- ceeded to pour fake money over Blatter’s head while announcing himself as a delegate for North Korea’s 2026 World Cup bid. “This is for North Korea 2026,” he said as he put down a wad of notes in front of Blatter.
Shortly after the incident, several users got on Twitter to make fun of Blatter and congratulated Brodkin on his stunt. “Blatter’s face encapsulates how we all feel about Lee Nelson’s attempts at being funny,” wrote one user. “If you’re Lee Nelson’s dad, please just call him and say that you’re proud of him and that maybe you should have that pint,” wrote another user.
