That’s Super Victor, the mascot of Euro 2016! Hi, buddy! He’s cute, huh? Kinda like Ness from Super Smash Bros. What a nice mascot, let’s Google him to find out more information!

Huh. Did UEFA just not think to look up whether or not their mascot shared a name with a big dildo?

Apparently not. The Guardian noticed the similarity and asked UEFA about it:

The character was unveiled in November 2014, then nameless, at a France friendly, as the build-up to Euro 2016 began. The public were then invited to vote in a social media poll, with Super Victor beating Driblou and Goalix to become the official name.

Driblou and Goalix sound like weird demon soccer Pokémon, I get it.

UEFA said the name was based on the idea of victory and refers to the super powers the small boy gained when he found a magic cape, boots and ball. A spokesman added: “All we can say is that they [the sex aids] are not produced by UEFA.”

So there you have it.
