Basketball legend Dennis Rodman is forever grabbing headlines.
Whether it’s for his long career with the Pistons, the Lakers and the Bulls or his notorious romances with the likes of Madonna and Carmen Electra, The Worm can’t resist being in the public eye.
And he’s known, too, for his myriad amazing looks – wearing a wedding dress to promote his autobiography or dyeing his hair a zillion colours to keep his fans entertained and fascinated.
He’s extended that flamboyance into the virtual world now with a completely CGI but nevertheless totally cool “implanted cigar dispenser”.
A video on his Instagram account shows Rodman reclining as a motorised cradle lifts a cigar from a secret compartment in his forearm.
It even has a dedicated cigar cutter to prepare the cheroot for smoking.
Some fans have commented that they’re not sure if it’s real or not, and one commenter has suggested it’s a great place to hide a hot dog.
It’s not real though. It’s CGI of the kind of quality that would have passed muster in a Hollywood movie just a few years ago, but now Rodman is just using it for laughs.
It’s a warning to his pal Kim Jong-un though that the next time the New Jersey born star visits Pyongyang, the leader’s bodyguards will have one extra place to search for weapons.
