超絶リフティングを披露する「ウェールズのマラドーナ」 太っちょ親父の正体は?【動画】

かなり太っちょ体型の男性が"リフティング"している姿を通行人が撮影、その動画が「バカテク!」「上手すぎてウケる!」と話題になっていたのはご存じだろうか?

その合成かと見まごうほどの凄まじいリフティングっぷりに、なんとメディアが取材に訪れるまでに発展。壁を使ったりヘディングしたりと、あらゆるテクで自在にボールを操るこの男はいったい何者!? というネットユーザーたちの疑問が解消されることとなった。

そのリフティング・オヤジの正体は、ウェールズに住むアンドリュー・キャシディ氏(50歳)。なんでも彼は、友人の死から気を紛らわせることと、お腹周りのダイエットのためにリフティングを始めたということだが、もともとサッカー好きなだけにみるみる上達した、ということのようだ。

しかし本人の知らぬ間に動画がアップされると、見た目とのギャップもあってか、たちまち人気者になったキャシディ氏。子供たちは集まってくるわ、動画はいつの間にか200万以上(!)の再生回数を記録するわの異常事態に。いまや「Welsh Maradona(ウェールズのマラドーナ)」なるニックネームまで付けられた彼には、なんとドバイで開催される『フリースタイル・サッカー世界大会』からオープニング・セレモニーへの出演オファーまで届いているらしい!

当のキャシディさんは、「ほとんど一夜にして起こったことだから、私自身とても驚いているんだ。ここ数日のことに現実味がなくて変な気分になってしまったもんだから、昨日も2時間くらいしか眠れなかったよ! YouTubeの動画すら観ていないから、とりあえずそこから始めようかな」と、戸惑いつつも楽しんでいる様子だ。

ダイエットのほうは今ひとつ進展がないようだが、世界中のサッカーファンに愛される新マスコットキャラになりそうだ。

Katy Perry showed up at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 10 with a boob window so wide, even Ellen couldn't help but gawk.

Kelly Rowland defied all logic when she showed up to the Grammys in a dress that had more slits than fabric, yet still managed to look hottt and avoid any nip slips (or worse!)

Leave it to J.Lo to channel Angelina Jolie -- and one-up her. Lopez's high slit dress had us worried we might get an unwanted sneak peek at her hoo-ha, but the lady is clearly a pro and she pulled off walking around in that thing like it's nobody's business.

RiRi's dress at the Grammys was supposedly on point with CBS' requests, but up close you could totally see her nipples. Accident? When Rihanna is involved, we think not.

"Les Mis" actress Samantha Barks had a pretty inventive way of showing off her tatas at the Elle Style Awards Feb. 11, with this square-ish peek-a-boo window.

The "Twilight" beauty attended the amfAR New York Gala on Feb. 6 showing an odd bit of skin that revealed much without revealing anything at all.

Keys' Grammy performance with Maroon 5 was electrifying, but we couldn't help feeling uneasy during the show for fear her underboob would go into full "boob exposure" mode.

The gorgeous lady is a repeat offender and even when she wasn't onstage, she walked the red carpet in a dress that was somewhere between elegant and S&M.

Did we say repeat offender? Yeah, we meant it. At the 2012 MTV European Music Awards the singer bared her toned, beautacious bod in an unusual way.

Remember when supermodel Anja Rubik put her hip bones on display at the 2012 Met Gala? Her obscenely high leg slit almost made us forget she's got one across her chest, too.

The breakout star of "Girls" was a guest on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and made it quite difficult for the host to concentrate with her strategic slit.

Cyrus attended Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Gala Feb. 9 and opted for a dress a bit too small on top... Unless she was going for massive sideboob, in which case, good going Miley!

The actress is also a repeat offender, seen here baring her back during Fashion Week in New York City.

Hmm... Not her best look yet? Greene went bandeau to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards and let her toned abs steal the spotlight.

We expect nothing less from the Gaga, who showed up to the "Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson" book launch party wearing her underwear. Oh, and this thin, see-through lace bit, but who's even looking at that?

Another puzzling boob window at the Elle Style Awards, this time courtesy of Britain's Gemma Cairney.

Arterton presented at the BAFTAs on Feb. 10 and played a sort of guessing game with us -- is she, or isn't she showing?!

The "Glee" star attended the Golden Globes with a dress that would make the rest of us stand with our hands on our hips the whole night, for fear our love handles will come bursting through.

Ditto the fashionista, who walked the red carpet at the Grammys in a cutouts clearly meant to show off her newly rocking physique.
