Watch: How Jarvo69 Pulled Off Lewd BBC FA Cup Prank

Jarvo69 has made quite the name for himself as a pitch invader in recent years, drawing the ire of many rugby fans for his heists of Six Nations and Autumn International test matches.

Daniel Jarvis - the man who goes by the name of Jarvo69 - was the culprit behind a far more audacious prank on Tuesday night, as he revealed himself to be the culprit behind a rather lewd stunt during BBC's FA Cup coverage.

During the BBC's broadcast of Wolves v Liverpool in a third round replay, the dreaded sound of the "porn noise meme" could be heard booming around the studio on several occasions. The meme is regularly used on social media to catch out unsuspecting viewers with their phone volume turned up in public places.

The sound could be heard over Gary Lineker's coverage of the match, with the BBC presenter laughing along with the incident, alongside pundits Alan Shearer, Paul Ince, and Danny Murphy.

Lineker would later tweet a photo of a phone hidden in the studio, which was the source of the noise.

Jarvo69 has been revealed as the perpetrator, having livestreamed his efforts to sabotage the BBC's coverage.

In a livestream later shared to his YouTube channel, Jarvo69 revealed the method by which he managed to infiltrate Tuesday night's FA Cup coverage.


He tweeted a video which showed him visiting the BBC studio at Molineux, during which he presumably planked the old Nokia phone which would become central to the stunt.

Jarvo69 would then livestream him watching the BBC's live broadcast of the game. He had programmed the phone's ringtone to be the "porn noise meme," and rang the old Nokia from his personal phone on several occasions.

The incidents in question can be seen from 3:20 onwards in the YouTube video.


The phone was eventually found once the broadcast cut to the match commentators at kick-off, allowing the presenters and producers the opportunity to search the studio, when Lineker would eventually find the hidden Nokia.

Jarvo69 remains a controversial figure, and has been handed a suspended prison sentence for "aggravated trespass" of a recent England cricket game. He has also gatecrashed numerous high-profile rugby games in recent years, including joining the All Blacks anthem ahead of their test against Wales in November 2021. He also invaded the pitch after last summer's infamous Champions League final.


Though he has invaded the field of play at massive sporting occasions in the past, the BBC phone prank surely goes down as Jarvo69's most innovative prank yet, and one which has drawn less ire than some of his tiresome antics in the past.
