British comedian Simon Brodkin (also known by his alter ego Lee Nelson) showered FIFA president Sepp Blatter in fake dollar bills at a press conference.
Brokin illegally entered the press conference, hopped on stage and announced himself as the North Korea World Cup delegate as he threw cash on Blatter, shouting it was for a fake bid for the North Korea 2026 World Cup — a clear jab at the soccer king's corruption and the notorious scandal that led to his downfall.
Officials had to clean up the cash, causing a minor delay for the press conference, which was called after Blatter announced February 26, 2016 as the next date for FIFA’s presidential election.
“We need to clean here first...this has nothing to do with football,” Blatter said as he walked out of the conference. Brodkin was kicked out of the building for his political stunt.
