ZURICH, SWITZERLAND - If you follow professional soccer, you might know that its international governing body, FIFA, is embroiled in scandal. Accusations of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering  led to the FBI arresting several of the organizations executives in May.

The scandal also has FIFA's president, Sepp Blatter, stepping down. But for now, he is still the butt of plenty of jokes.

British comedian, and expert at interrupting public events, Lee Nelson is the latest practitioner. During a press conference in Switzerland, Nelson halted proceedings to make a symbolic gesture. The provocateur made it rain fake money on the embattled president, a reference to bribery allegations plaguing the World Cup. Nelson apparently told Blatter, "this is for North Korea 2026," before throwing the money

Nelson has a history of these stunts. He somehow got on stage during Kanye West's performance at Glastonbury music festival earlier this year.

Nelson may not have the best tactics, but he's pretty good at picking targets.
