(Warning: Article contains adult themes) Europe’s highly anticipated soccer tournament Euro 2016 kicks off throughout France today with the cream of European football talent on show.
However, the tournament’s found its first piece of controversy and, for once, it has nothing to do with the simmering hatred of opposing fans.
A rather amusing faux pas has arisen over the tournament’s mascot; a nice little lad in a French football shirt who goes by the name of Super Victor. Here’s the cute little fella:
Super Victor’s powers come from his cape, boots and ball, and his name was voted on by the French public and beat out runner-up suggestions ‘Driblou’ and ‘Goalix’.
However, a quick Google search of Super Victor doesn’t take you to all the stats, teams and results of Euro 2016; instead you could fast find yourself inadvertently purchasing a 17-inch dildo which also happens to go by the same name. Here’s the other Super Victor in all its painful, pleasurable glory. (Note: B&T strongly advises office discretion if you’re planning your own Google image search.)
According to one Aussie site that B&T only uses purely for research purposes, the Super Victor is a “giant, huge, massive, stupendous and eeeeeeenormous! Super Victor weighs in at an extraordinary 5.5 kilos, is 19-inches in circumference and over 17-inches long!”
The site rated it “five-stars” from satisfied users and it retails in Australia for $169.99. It’s available in red or black for those who may be interested.
