Comedian Simon Brodkin Showers Sepp Blatter With Fake Money At FIFA HQ (Video)

Sepp Blatter’s long-awaited press conference in Zurich is off to a flying start. Flying money, that is.

A heckler delayed the start of Blatter’s press conference Monday, berating, then showering the FIFA president moments before he was to begin speaking to reporters. Various media outlets have identified the heckler as British comedian Simon Brodkin (or Lee Nelson).

Blatter called for security, who escorted Nelson out of the press room. Blatter then walked to the podium and said he would delay the start of press conference in order to “clean” the room.
