In his video, Windhage claimed to have looked through social media posts to determine the color of lanyards and QR codes that actual Euro employees were wearing, then replicated those details. 

Wildhage was spotted behind a stanchion, dancing and posing for pictures with fans much as a real mascot would. 

Wildhage has already drawn attention to the competitors’ security shortcomings. In a previous video, he was seen on the field during a Germany training session last month, dressed as a player, so this wasn’t the first time.
