Jarvo69 hopped over the advertising boards at the Principality Stadium dressed in a full replica All Blacks strip and head over to the players in the build-up to kick-off.
The YouTuber jogged past several security guards and staff members on the pitch to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the New Zealand team as they sang their national anthem.
After quite some time Jarvo69 was found out and eventually got escorted from the pitch to a standing ovation from the packed out crowd. The prankster has since released a seven-minute video that shows every step of his auditions act starting with his travels to Cardiff
Jarvo69 has pulled off similar stunts in the NFL, cricket and other huge sporting events and following full time New Zealand scrum half Brad Webber searched for him on Twitter to invite him for a beer, however Covid restrictions prevented it from happening.
For those wanting an update: I forgot we’re in a bubble so we couldn’t catch up. A real shame
