Old Video of Urban Meyer refusing bong from semi-naked man during TV chat goes viral
The video saw a semi-naked man appear in Meyer's room while he was in the middle of a live TV interview offering a bong rip to the football coach
The week that went by brought along with it a storm for American football coach Urban Meyer. A video of him grinding and dancing at a blonde woman who was not his wife emerged on the Internet. The NFL head coach was ripped apart for his behavior on social media and his wife Shelley Meyer too chimed in saying she was home, babysitting their grandchildren while "Buddy", her name for Urban, had a night out. She quote tweeted a photo of Meyers with the caption, “Meanwhile, I am babysitting. #MyChoice #MimiRules #BuddyDeservedANightOut”. Amidst all this chaos, an old video of him refusing a bong from a semi-naked man has resurfaced on the Internet and is going as viral as the dancing/grinding video.
The coach and Shelley have been married for 35 years and the Internet took offense to the fact that Meyer was visibly comfortable with the woman he was seen dancing with, in the video which first emerged on October 2. Meyer had his arm serving as a barrier between him and the woman which is being viewed as some kind of saving grace for him as users pointed out the woman's advances were unwanted from his end. There was also a photograph shared on Twitter that saw Meyer holding a drink in his hand while posing with the woman.
"I just apologized to the team and staff for being a distraction," the coach said who stayed back in Ohio to have dinner with his family members while the rest of his team flew back. "I stayed to see the grandkids and we all went to the dinner that night. There was a big group next to our restaurant and they wanted me to come over and take pictures, and I did. They were trying to pull me out on the dance floor, screwing around, and I should have left," he continued. He also added that he apologized to his family and confirmed they were upset about the video.

Urban Meyer refusing a bong rip creates frenzy on Twitter
After apologizing to his team for causing a distraction, an old video reemerged on the internet. For the unversed, Meyer was doing a live interview in his room when a semi-naked man flung the door open and walked in. Meyer was seen aggressively waving at the man, as if asking him to stay out of the frame. However, on close observation, people noticed that the semi-naked man had walked in with a bong and a lighter and was offering a bump to Meyer which he refused by waving at him. The video had created a frenzy back then and it managed to repeat the feat yet again and Twitter users had a field day having fun yet again at the coach's expense.
"Some shirtless Joe in the mirror followed by a bubbling bong rip on live TV?! Urban Meyer unprecedentedly down bad," read a tweet. "#UrbanMeyer waving off a hit from a bong from a half-naked man during an old interview. Jags actually interviewed this guy and said 'we can build around him'," another tweet read. "Urban loves bong rips," wrote another.
