The Euro 2016 mascot has a rather embarrassing secret
The mascot for Euro 2016 has a very surprising namesake.
The UEFA European Championship football tournament is set to begin today in France.
Ahead of the event, UEFA wheeled out its new mascot, a fresh-faced guy in a football kit who wears a cape and has superpowers.
The name of the mascot is ‘Super Victor’… but you probably shouldn’t search online for any merchandise featuring him.
One review of Super Victor states: “Super Victor is as realistic as it gets. Very soft and flexible.
“Don’t be intimidated by the size as I was.. iIt took me some time, but when I finally came out of my shell, [Super Victor was] super amazing! It hits all the right spots and feels phenomenal.”
It turns out that the mascot’s name is also used to sell a very popular sex toy.
Super Victor is the name of a ten-inch dildo sold by New York Exotic Novelties, available in black, purple or flesh-colours.
A description states: “Super Victor is designed with maximum thickness and maximum length for maximum pleasure, this ultra realistic ballsy c**k will get the job done.
“Extra thick and long c**k has a well-defined head and bulging veins to rock your world. Perfect bedside companion stands long and strong with a manly ball-sack attached.”
A spokesperson for UEFA insisted their mascot was named after the concept of victory.
They insisted: “All we can say is that they [the sex toys] are not produced by Uefa.”
