During the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LV, a man ran across the field at Raymond James Stadium in a pink thong bathing suit with green running shoes. The moment shocked Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, the entire Kansas City Chiefs team, along with the millions of viewers watching the game at home.
“A fan on the field,” the announcer joked, “Jim, did you run down there?”
“I will be later for the trophy presentation, but not this soon,” Jim Nantz responded.

Kevin Harlan exclaimed, “A man just ran onto the field… some guy with a bra.” As the man ran down to the field with “arms in his air in a victory salute,” Harlan said, just before the streaker pulled down his pants to reveal a thong bottom.

It was a wild moment to watch since the Super Bowl game is assumed to have incredibly tight security. The man’s identity was not immediately revealed, however, he did abide by the NFL’s COVID-19 rules, and ran down the field while wearing a protective face mask.
That streaker just picked up more yards than the Chiefs offense has all night

At the time, Tampa Bay Buccaneers were up on the Kansas Chiefs 31 to 9, an absolute unexpected rout. The man, later identified as Yuri Andrade, a 31-year-old Boca Raton resident, according to The Washington Post. Andrade was charged with trespassing and released on a $500 bond.
According to Andrade’s booking report, he told police that he was self-employed in “international business.”

During a preseason Chiefs game in 2019, a streaker also ran onto the field at Lambeau Field. Late in that game, a shirtless fan ran onto the field.
During that game, Chiefs safety Harold Jones-Quartey took matters into his own hands and took down the streaker with a form tackle.
The Pink Onesie Read ‘Vitaly Uncensored’ Which Is a Porn Site
Andrade’s hot pink onesie read, “Vitaly Uncensored,” which is a porn site. Heavy will not link to the porn site promoted on the streaker’s bathing suit.

Due to the less than stellar offense on the Chiefs side, thousands of jokes filled Twitter about whether or not the streaker could maybe catch one of Mahomes’ passes. Barstool Birds tweeted, “Streaker best part of this Super Bowl.”
Security Quickly Tackled the Streaker to the Ground in the End Zone

The man in the pink thong running across the field on Super Bowl Sunday made it all the way to the end zone on February 7 before he was tackled by a member of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
WEEI, a radio station in Boston, posted tweeted a photo of a man that held a sign that reads, “If you give me your extra ticket, I promise I’ll streak this field in the 4th.”

However, the man in the aforementioned tweet was not the man that actually streaked across the field.
