Soccer fans can be a bit crazy. They shout racist epithets to players, throw explosives onto the field, and riot (well, that one can be said by all sports I guess), but one fan took it to a new extreme.
A French fan of the newly acquired Paris saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic bought the player's domain name and will give it back to Ibrahimovic. With a catch of course.
The fan bought zlatan.fr and posted only one post, explaining why he bought the domain name and steps on how to get the name back. The fan says that if Ibrahimovic completes just ONE of the twelve challenges given, he will happily give the name back to the Swede.
The challenges are crazy and borderline fanatical:
1. Offer me a dedicated PSG jersey, with my name on it and the following quote: "After Zlatan, you really are the best !"
2. Stay at my place for a month. This way, all my life, I could say "Ibra? Sure, he used to sleep on my couch for a while."
3. Offer me 3 lifetime season tickets, for two of my friends and I. Obviously, I'm talking about Official tribune tickets… don't try to fool me with your crappy H Blue tribune tickets…
4. Win penalty kicks against me, at the Parc des Princes of course, so that you're at home and have no excuse in case I win.
5. Beat me at taekwondo. I've heard you're not too bad at it. As I've never practiced that sport myself, I recommend you to choose this challenge.
6. Give me one of your locks of hair as a gift. Samson's strength came from his long hair. I think it works the same way with you. Then, I can make a key ring with it, which will bring me power for the rest of my life.
7. Beat me at FIFA13. You can choose the teams but, anyway trust me, there is no way you can make it.
8. Score a more-than-30-meter-backflip-goal in an official game. Just kidding… this is not realistic.
9. Let me slap you in the face, without saying a word… and in public obviously.
10. Offer a bare-chested dedicated photo of you to my girlfriend. Frankly, among all of those challenges, I have to confess it's not my favorite. I'm getting fed up to see twinkles in her eyes when you take off your jersey at the end of a game.
11. Manage to have Neymar sign at PSG during the 2013 summer transfer market.
12. Simply ask me to let you have this domain name for free… but face to face and – as a tribute to Guillaume – in French obviously.
Slapping in the face? Lock of your hair? Stay at my place? This man is crazy. Seriously though, Ibrahimovic should just let this one go and get another name or just get slapped in the face. I don't know.
