Sportscaster Kevin Harlan called more than just the winning moves of Super Bowl LV on Sunday. In the final quarter of the epic battle between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs, a man ran onto the field in a neon pink thong suit as part of a marketing prank for a porn website. Harlan called it just as he would have any other play.
The runner’s quirky outfit had “Vitaly Uncensored” emblazoned across its front. It is in reference to an x-rated site launched by YouTube star and prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy. He has more than 10 million followers on YouTube.
Harlan didn’t miss a beat and was a consummate pro when calling the incident on the field. He reacted as if the runner was going for a touchdown and took advantage of the spectacle.
The prankster ended up at the one-yard line and was greeted by six security guards and a bunch of police officers as he went down. He evaded one security guard with an impressive spin move before he was eventually taken out.

As the guards tackled the interloper and took him down in front of 25,000 fans, Harlan called it as the drama played out.
“Second down, 20, 5:03 to go… someone has run on the field,” Harlan called. “Some guy with a bra. And now, he’s not being chased, he’s running the middle, he’s at the 40. Arms in the air in a victory salute. He’s pulling down his pants, pull up your pants my man! Pull up those pants! He’s being chased to the 30… he breaks a tackle from a security guard at the 20, down the middle at the 10, the five! He slides at the one and they converge on him at the goal line.”
“Pull up your pants, take off the bra and be a man! And the players with hands on hips at the other end of the field are looking at him and shaking their heads and saying why, oh why is his taking place in a Super Bowl?” concluded Harlan.
FAN ON THE FIELD!

“We f–king did it,” Vitaly Zdorovetskiy tweeted after the runner was pinned down.
There is no word on what, if any, charges the runner will face for pulling this gag.

This is not the first time that Vitaly Uncensored has sponsored a stunt like this. He’s also done it at World Series and World Cup games.
Zdorovetskiy also has a rap sheet. Last April, he was charged with felony aggravated battery after he supposedly jumped out of his car and threw a woman down on the ground. He spent five days in an Egyptian prison following his capture after climbing the pyramids. He was also busted in 2016 for reportedly scaling the letter “D” on the Hollywood sign,
Harlan’s call was epic and historical, not to mention amusing. It was one of the highlights of the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl ended with the Buccaneers winning in a blowout of 31-9. But one of the big things it will be remembered for is Harlan’s epic narration for the runner moves.
