The end of the World Cup inevitably results in a few people losing their jobs – plenty of coaches, the odd referee, gaffe-prone broadcasters, temporary catering and security staff. However, one man whose work we’ve all seen has been cruelly cast aside this morning as another Mundial becomes a memory.
Love him or hate him, spare a thought today for the poor pervy cameraman, who finds himself jobless until, well, next week I suppose – the Commonwealth Games broadcasters will surely be looking for a gratuitous athlete slo-mo guy.
Anyway, as an homage to his slithery sleuthing, here are the standout moments of the Pervy Cameraman’s Brazilian odyssey.
Man In Yellow Hat Ruins Everything
Shame on you sir. You have disgraced the humble pervy cameraman in the pursuit of his ancient and (ig)noble profession.
Hypnotic Korean fan was a bigger pro than he is
Here the creepy crowd-crawler has sought out a well-known Korean TV personality, hence the professional-looking turn to the camera. Expertly done, but not as amazing as Arjen Robben or Benoit Assou-Ekkoto’s introductory arm-foldings.
Possibly his easiest game
Brazil v. Colombia presented him with innumerable ogling opportunities, including when he gave this fan a happy surprise early on.
Her terrifying-looking mate is rightly having none of it, with Brazil having gone into an early lead. Fair play to him.
That one time his perving got his target the sack.
Highlighting teenage Belgian fan Axelle Despiegelaere led to her losing a modelling contract after it was revealed that she had tweeted a picture of herself with an antelope she’d shot on a hunting holiday.
The more awful the match, the less subtle he became
I believe this tactic is known as the “Coppers, last orders”.
This was just cruel
There is something especially wrong about perving on the soon-to-be defeated, but try telling that to our salacious seeker.
His perviest hour – the shove of discovery
OK, so France-Switzerland was not exactly a snoozefest, but with Les Bleus four goals up with less than ten minutes to go, he must have felt it necessary to inject some wanton lechery into proceedings.
So what moments did we miss? Do let us know.
