Comedian Lee Nelson made it rain all over FIFA super-villain at press conference
Sepp Blatter had a series of bank notes rained on him by comedian Lee Nelson (real name Simon Brodkin), during a press conference that was called to discuss between FIFA reforms, and an election date for its new president. Nelson was immediately removed from the premises by Swiss security, but not before shouting "North Korea 2026! Cheers Sep, it's all there!" and clapping himself off stage.
Nelson has a history of running on stage and “pranking” public figures. Earlier this year, he bumrushed Kanye West’s set and rapped along with the “world’s greatest rock star” before being escorted off by security.
Fifa will announce Blatter’s replacement on February 26, 2015. Those interested in succeeding Blatter will have to be announced by October 26, until then Blatter will remain in power.
