SATURDAY’S EUROVISION final was not short of memorable moments, some for different reasons than others.

During a performance by last year’s winner Jamala, a man wearing an Australian flag got up on stage and mooned the crowd:

The exhibitionist has been named as Ukrainian citizen Vitalii Sediuk, a so-called prankster who has assaulted various celebrities over the years.

His victims include Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid, who he attempted to lift off the ground last year (getting an elbow to the face for his efforts).

In a post on his Facebook page, Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov called Sediuk an “idiot” and revealed that he was arrested after the stunt:

This is a disgrace to the country. He will be able to exercise his ‘hobby’ in a prison cell.

According to Reuters, Sediuk faces charges of hooliganism, and could get anything from a fine to five years in prison. Will that get him to cop on? Who knows.

Australia, we’re sorry for blaming you. You’re just trying to be good faux-Europeans <3
