Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg Is Mexico’s Entire Olympic Ski Team and He Is More Awesome Than Your Dad

I was watching the Winter Olympics all last month because I only get about 3 watchable channels on my TV because Time Warner graciously lets me get them for free for overpaying them for mediocre internet. One of those channels had the Olympics on it, so that is pretty much all that I watched all month. If you were watching the Olympics you may have seen this man:

He is Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and yes he is wearing a ski suit that looks like a Mariachi outfit. And he has balls made out of titanium (not pictured)

He is a German Prince who was born in Mexico, which is why he is able to be on their ski team. He is the only member of the Mexican Olympic ski team and the oldest athlete in the Olympics, he is 55. He is also a photographer, businessman, and pop singer. He also goes by the names Andy Himalaya and Royal Disaster. He has been skiing in the Olympics since 1984.

Here he is at the 2010 Olympics dressed as a Mexican Bandito complete with gun and bandolier printed on his ski suit.

I’m not sure if he just skis for fun or if he is just totally batshit insane, or both. He doesn’t appear to be a very good skier since he fell during the event he was in and was disqualified, but he was dressed like a mariachi while he did it, so that was something that happened.

He also wore a ski suit that resembled a cardboard box once for some reason. Not sure what a cardboard box has to do with Mexico, but it probably has some deep meaning behind it that can only be understood by eccentric multinational royalty. But it probably means “check out my package”.

As I already mentioned, he is also a pop singer. Here is one of his music videos:

He has like 8 albums apparently and I guess people must buy them. This guy is pretty damn awesome, he even tops the crazy hair guy on Ancient Aliens.
