Man goes to dog park with body slathered with peanut butter after coming in last in Fantasy Football.
A photo of a man covered head to toe in peanut butter is going viral, and now he’s sharing how he got into such a predicament.
A hilarious video of a man covered head-to-toe in peanut butter inside a Deep Ellum dog park is taking off online, primarily because the stunt was punishment for coming in dead last in his fantasy football league this year.
For those who don’t obsess over draft plans, team schedules, or player stats, fantasy football is a predominantly online game where you’re the owner of a virtual professional football team.
“It was my first year, and I didn’t do any kind of studying at first. I just kind of jumped in,” he said. “I came in dead last.”
Who was his first pick? LeVeon Bell, who ended up sitting out the season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Shrout auto-drafted after his first pick.
The rules in his league this year said the team with the worst record had to pay the winner $250 or perform a humiliating stunt. His punishment? Paying up or standing in a dog park for 10 minutes wearing a gold Speedo and peanut butter.
Wednesday of last week was his day.
“My strategy was to do it as fast as possible, and hope that not many people would see me,” Shrout said. “A lot of (the dog owners) just wondered what I was doing, and then when I said I lost a bet, they all laughed.”
His friends let him leave after five minutes but made sure to get photos and videos that quickly went viral.
“I’m just a guy who’s brave,” Shrout said.
