Inbetweeners Star Tweets About Missed Ballon d'Or Opportunity
As Jay Cartwright on The Inbetweeners, James Buckley is known for stretching the truth more than the Manitowoc County Sheriff's Department and last night, fiction merged with reality as Buckley channeled his inner Jay during the Ballon d'Or ceremony.
According to, well, himself, Buckley wasn't a bad footballer during his younger days and was apparently tipped as a future winner of the big golden ball, but ended up swapping the pitch for the silver screen so he could wear a scuba mask and wank his ham clad knackers flat.
When I was a kid everyone said I was a future #BallondOr winner. But I wanted to focus on my acting and shit. Now I'm famous for wanking hamJames Buckley (@James_Buckley) January 11, 2016
Naturally, it didn't take long for one of Buckley's Twitter followers to embellish his Wikipedia profile with this new found knowledge.
I encourage any edits on my Wikipedia page when they're this funny :joy: G'night pic.twitter.com/qz0xupHHLTJames Buckley (@James_Buckley) January 11, 2016
Originally, the above post would indicate that Buckley took the edit in good spirits, but we imagine his actual reaction was more along these lines...
Ballon d'Or wanker.
