Man Living Inside Giant World Cup Football (2 pics)


Adam Santarossa is being paid thousands of dollars to watch the World Cup inside a giant football in Melbourne, Australia.

The 23-year-old says his friends are jealous after he was selected by Adidas to spend the month-long tournament watching football, tweeting and writing blogs inside the 20 foot (six meter) diameter Jabulani ball. “Other people have work commitments and family commitments. My only problem is getting my blog done on time,” he told AFP. “It’s an easy life I’m living. I’m sure people will be quite jealous.”

Santarossa has a well-stocked fridge, bunk bed, PlayStation 3, and laptop, and will get $2,600 for his trouble, along with the contents of the ball and three bags full of sports gear. “I had a bit of trouble at the start — it’s a bit difficult having people peer in through the windows 24-seven,” he said. “But it’s a pretty easy life. I’m going to be seeing if they can extend my lease.”

If you were offered the same deal, would you have taken it?
