Scores of football fans could be 'under a vest' at World Cup
We’re but a few months away from the festival of merchandising football that is the World Cup in South Africa, and as we all know (lazy journalism alert) every single fan who travels to the tournament will be constantly stabbed, mugged, raped and murdered pretty much from the minute they step off the plane thanks to the unbelievable crime wave that is South Africa. Apparently.
In a bid to feast on these fears and make a few quid into the bargain, a company has come up with the Protektorvest, a stab vest that is available in the colours of your nation’s flag – helping to keep you safe from inevitable death while you proudly sport your colours, which in itself could increase the risk of becoming a stab-target.
According to the blurb: “Protektorvest offers effective protection from potential attacks from blades, knives, bottles and broken glass and turns your stab vest into a special and exclusive fan article.” Not a distasteful cash-in in any way shape or form then? Great!
If it catches on, we could see the wearing of these things creep into the domestic game as peacenik knife-wielding hooligans look to get their kicks without causing long-lasting damage to their fellow boneheads. Are you reading this Sky? Sounds like a show to us!
