In case you missed it: Brendan Venter’s surreal post-match interview

In case you missed the one and only viral video featuring a South African sports player (not counting Amanda Coetzee’s bachelorette party ping-pong ball trick clip), here is the YouTube short of Brendan Venter giving an absolutely surreal interview after a loss to Racing Metro.

The back story here is that he had recently been sanctioned by rugby officials after a previous interview in which he criticized match officials for costing his team the game.  It turns out speaking your mind is not looked upon kindly by the rugby powers that be.

Good on ya Brendan, sticking it to the man!

  1. Too true! Am dying for some surreal scenes at Loftus. We got close with Luke Watson, but everyone is still far too serious and conforming. Maybe things will change as the overseas influence starts to come home?
