Mario Balotelli Video: Watch Italian Superstar Spit Horrendous Drink

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterJune 25, 2012

My, God. Who put what into Mario Balotelli's drink?

We have yet another unanswered question to mount atop the heap already occupied by "What's going on in JaVale McGee's head?" and "Is Gremlins 2 truly better than Gremlins?"

There is enough there to last a lifetime for the great philosophers, but I would like to take a moment to understand what the hell is going on in this video. 

The Italian superstar who is known for being as volatile as he is enigmatic takes a swig of something laced with awful.

If he is like me, the sports drink must taste like tofu. 

Yahoo Sports chimes in with a breakdown of the spit-take, which is slowly gaining traction in the land of memes and viral videos. 

They pretty much offer nothing in the way of answers, so I look to you faithful readers to fill in the blanks of what was in the drink, or simply what it tasted like. 

I also encourage you to watch the short vignette of disgust one more time because it gets funnier. 

Balotelli doesn't go right in for the sip, but kind of moves it around his nose for a bit. It gives the audience enough time to scream, "Nooooo."

Classic comedic timing. Kudos to youdos, Balotelli.
