Super Bowl LV He was advertising a pornographic website
The Super Bowl held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium was a successful event, bringing 25,000 fans into the stadium for the showpiece event of the season, but just who was the streaker who ran onto the playing surface and why did he do it?
An answer to this is fairly straightforward, with Yuri Andrade being named as the individual who was found guilty of a misdemeanour offence of burglary after he made his way onto the field half naked.

He was arrested shortly after and was required to pay a 500 dollar bond to get out of jail on Monday morning.
According to USA Today, Andrade described himself as ‘autonomous’ when speaking to authorities, yet it has now emerged he was engaged in an international business ploy.
The streaker admitted that the pornographic website he advertised on his pink bathing suit, Vitaly Uncensored, was actually owned by a friend of his, but he assured police that he wasn’t paid for the stunt.
A somewhat more worrying thread of information that is emerging is the number of bets that were made on there being a pitch invader during the Super Bowl, with it alleged that Andrade himself placed such a wager.
Betting 50,000 dollars would have earned a return of 375,000 dollars, which would more than cover Andrade’s legal costs.
As well as Andrade’s stunt, there was also a hoax bomb threat which had to be investigated during Sunday evening’s match, and that remains an active investigation.
It is worth remembering that it was Vitaly Uncensored that were behind Kinsey Wolanski streaking during the 2019 Champions League final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
