He is making a fortune but he also is risking becoming the most unpopular man in the country.

His name is David Broughton and he is the salesman who has introduced vuvuzelas to the UK.

He has been quietly importing the noisy South African trumpets since last July and has already sold 10,000. Since the World Cup kicked off the 40-year-old has been selling the plastic horns for £10 each at a rate of one a minute.

But the businessman, known as Mr Vuvuzela, admits he is likely to be public enemy number one this summer with the horn's deafening monotone loathed by millions.

The BBC has already had 545 complaints from fans fed up with the deafening din and is even considering a vuvuzela-free zone via its red button.

  • It should be legal to brutally murder anybody caught playing the vuvuzela outside the privacy of their own home...

  • Lmao - I love the line "you know me, i'm a reasonable man..."

    English football supporters will use it as a "yard of ale" device; fill it with ale and suck instead of blow!

  • When I was a high school kid we occasionally took air hornes to the basketball games. The type you used in a boating emergency. School adminisrators came down on that like a ton of bricks.

    One kid found a surplus WWII air raid siren-- the type with the hand crank. He bolted it to a wooden plank and we tried that out once. Same result, of course.

  • Perhaps someone could arrange for a vuvuzela orchestra to practice outside Mr Broughtons home every evening for a month since he likes them so much.

  • Plastic Rules!! lmao cause I have the match on right now and the background noise of the vuvuzelas is actually becoming normal after a week. That along with the British commentary is somewhat soothing???

  • I have seriously invested in Advil and Tylenol PM when I flip on ESPN. They give me a major headache at night. Good thing I am no longer married, "honey I have a headache because of the vuvuzelas"
