Prankster Showers FIFA’s Sepp Blatter With Fistful of Cash

1 minute read

An intruder at a FIFA press conference stunned the organization’s embattled president on Monday by hurling what appeared to be fistfuls of cash at Sepp Blatter, drawing attention to a sweeping corruption scandal that has prompted Blatter to step down.

“Where is my security?” Blatter could be heard asking shortly before guards dragged away the prankster, David Brodkin, a British comedian who made headlines earlier this summer for crashing a live performance by Kanye West at Glastonbury, Sky News reports.

Blatter dismissed the prankster’s “lack of education” and cleared the stage at the organization’s Zurich headquarters so attendants could sweep up the paper bills.

FIFA will hold an election for Blatter’s successor on February 26, 2016.
