Super Bowl streaker Yuri Andrade has reportedly made $374,000 on a bet – after betting someone would streak during Sunday’s game.
During the fourth quarter of Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, play came to a temporary stop.
A streaker had managed to make it onto the pitch with fans (and cardboard cutouts) across the stadium watching on in disbelief.
But Andrade may have pulled the heist of the century. On Twitter, a leaked DM conversation claims the 31-year-old had put a bet on himself and used a friend as a decoy.
The message reads: “Met the Super Bowl streaker at J. Alexander’s Restaurant while having lunch before leaving Tampa.
“He bet $50,000 on a prop bet at +750 that there would be a streaker at the Super Bowl.
“His buddy went out first as a diversion so he didn’t get caught as quickly as his friend.
“Cost him $1000 to get out of jail so he cleared $374,000 on the bet. No s**t.”
Vitaly Zdorovetskiy is believed to be behind the stunt, as a means to promote his Vitaly Uncensored website.
NFL commentator Kevin Harlan described the incident in detail for fans at home, who didn’t see footage on the broadcast.
“Some guy has run on the field – some guy with a bra,” he said per RT.
“And now he’s not being chased, he’s running down the middle of the 40, arms in the air in a victory salute.
“He’s pulling down his pants. Pull up your pants, my man – pull up those pants. Pull up your pants, take off the bra and be a man.
“The players, with hands on hips at the other end of the field, are looking at him and shaking their heads and saying, ‘why oh why is this taking place in a Super Bowl?'”
Back on the field, the Bucs beat the Chiefs 31-9 to give Tom Brady a historic seventh Super Bowl ring.
The 43-year-old proved that age is nothing but a number and that his experience was more a help than his advancing years were a hindrance.
