Money will make people do the unthinkable, well for this one particular risk taker, Yuri Andrade it surely paid off. He went to extremes of wearing a pink thong bathing suit and broke into the field.
He says he came up with the idea for the stunt after seeing a prop bet that offered GREAT ODDS if someone actually ran onto the field during the Super Bowl 55.
The man opened up how he came up with the idea to win the bet. During an interview with WILD 94.1 he said the gambling website Bovada offered +750 odds ($100 bet pays $750) so he decided to take the matter into his hands and make sure he wins the bet.
Andrade said he had to call up everyone he knew and had them BET on someone storming the field, he then got tickets to the game and recruited a buddy to serve as a decoy.
His decoy pal had to destruct the security so that he could storm into the field. Once the security was distracted it was the perfect time for him to storm the field.
He also sent someone to Vegas to make the prop bet at a sports book there. Andrade says he walked away with $375,000 in profit from his stunt.
Andrade was arrested and charged with trespassing but he says it wasn’t a big deal because he walked away with loads of cash.
