MTV'S Matthew Pritchard Wasted and Naked on Flight


It's not often that you can laugh at a story about a celebrity going on a booze and drug-fueled tirade on an international flight. Fortunately for Matthew Pritchard—one of the stars of MTV's British daredevil/prank show "Dirty Sanchez" and CEO at Sleep When You're Dead Tattoo and Barber Shop in Cardiff, Wales—he was just one of the wild passengers on a chartered party plane that was part of the Gumball 3000 Motor Rally festivities. However, from reports of the flight from Amsterdam to the United States, Pritchard was definitely the wildest passenger.

"I have no recollection of this," Pritchard said in a caption on an Instagram from the flight. "Never mix drink and Zanex [sic]. Thankfully I was flying Gumball airlines because if it was any other flight I would be jailed," Pritchard commented.

According to other reports and statements Pritchard has made on social media, after mixing Xanax with alcohol on the flight, he blacked out, stripped down to just his hat and socks, straddled passengers and eventually urinated on actor Dolph Lundgren.

"I've apologized to @dolphlundgren and he accepted like a gent," Pritchard said.

The flight was a private plane for people involved in the Gumball 3000 Motor Rally, and according to the promo video below, there were sections for partying and there are shots in the video and photos online of other passengers smoking and drinking. Pritchard is, so far, the only one documented naked on the 14 hour flight.

"I think having Pritchard on the plane as my entertainer kind of helped," Maximillion Cooper, founder of Gumball 3000 says in the video below. "Pritchard kind of gets the party going, and then goes overboard."

In one photo, Pritchard stands nude next to a seated rapper Bun B, his penis at eye level. The video shows Bun B take to the plane's intercom system to greet passengers on the transcontinental flight. "If you plan on sleeping today, unfortunately Pritchard is on the plane, so it's probably not gonna happen."

Once all was said and done, Pritchard tweeted, "I'm done. I think my body's finally told me to slow down. 10 days on the piss ain't bad for a 42 year old. #Gumball3000 #puking."
