Mario Balotelli Pays Man To Drive Moped Into Sea In His Tighty Whities

Mario Balotelli is enjoying his summer.

On Saturday, the Italian striker posted an Instagram video of a man he apparently paid €2,000 ($2,246 USD) to ride his moped into the ocean.

We’re not sure if Balotelli required this man to do it in his tighty whities or the man just didn’t want to get his clothes wet, but what followed was the exact thing social media was created for.

That’s €2,000 well spent, if you ask us.

The man who drove the moped into the sea said his moped was only worth $600, so he actually made a profit.

Plus, Balotelli posted an IG story to his account later showing the moped had been pulled out of the water and still kind of worked.
