This year’s deadline day purple dildo moment comes via an Italian with an inflatable banana https://t.co/vvlztfOPC0

(UPDATE: Turns out the video was a well executed set-up and the “reporter” is actually an actor. Well played to The Football Republic.)
Though you probably have never had someone jam an inflatable banana in your face while you try to do your job, you can surely imagine that such an experience might make you a bit angry. Especially if your job requires you to speak coherently in front of a camera while people watch live.
So when one Italian reporter found himself in this very situation outside Stamford Bridge on deadline day, he made the persistent idiot pay — first with a series of elbow jabs, then by taking the banana and beating him with it.
If only the Sky Sports News reporter who took a dildo in the ear did the same thing…
