British Comedian Simon Brodkin crashed a press conference today in Zurich and “made it rain” on FIFA President Sepp Blatter. Brodkin, as the character Jason Bent, which he popularized on his BBC comedy show Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show, interrupted Blatter as he was about to speak on reform within the scandal-plagued soccer organization.
You may remember Brodkin for crashing Kanye West’s performance during the Glastonbury Festival.
Well good, indeed! Brodkin not only made a mockery of Blatter, whose top agency executives have been arrested on charges of bribery and corruption, but the comedian properly used American dollars (fake though) to make it rain. A true rain maker knows that only the American dollar can make it rain, not those colorful Euros.

And of course social media went crazy with clips and comments:
