Babs, a DJ at our sister station in Tampa Bay, WILD 94.1, spoke with Super Bowl streaker Yuri Andrade about his big stunt from the Big Game. Listen to the interview below:
Were the players mad at the interruption? Hardly! Babs noted that she saw Andrade and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans at a Tampa club on Monday night. According to Andrade, Evans said that the stunt was “epic” and that the team was “dying laughing.” They even took a photo together.
Andrade said his friend who has a prank website — “Vitaly Uncensored,” which we won’t link to due to its NSFW content — has been trying to pull off a stunt like this for years, so Yuri came up with a plan “to do two people, one to run as a distraction so all the security rushes him, so I can clear the field.”
Then his friend wondered if there was a prop bet about an on-field streaker… and there was. It was “plus 750” for a fan to run on to the field. Andrade explains that in depth in the interview.
Andrade ended up paying to bail himself and his friend out of jail which set them back $1K, and paid for two Super Bowl tickets. However, they made their money back and then some.
So what did his mom think about this? She initially got mad, but after she got tons of calls from reporters that she was proud of him.
Finally, Andrade says that his is also working on a documentary that details the inception of the idea to the aftermath.
