Confirming former Italy manager Cesare Prandelli's assertion the day before that Mario Balotelli is "fundamentally a good guy" who "lives in a place that is far away from reality," the Milan striker posted a video on Instagram of himself dancing while ironing a shirt, reading Zlatan Ibrahimovic's autobiography and listening to Biggie Smalls.
Given all the Puma product placement (and the fact that Mario is ironing right over the logo of his shirt), there's a good chance this is a viral marketing campaign. But Balotelli executes it so delightfully that it really doesn't matter. This is how I like to imagine he does all of his ironing.
