An Acadiana man made good on a lost football bet to his wife by standing at a busy intersection in an eye-catching outfit.

The spectacle took place on Wednesday, October 2 at Rees and Bridge Streets in Breaux Bridge.

This isn't the first time Scotty and Lauren Boudreaux have had to do silly things for losing a bet. The Breaux Bridge couple bets on every Thursday and Monday night game, something they've been doing for the last five years. "Unless the Saints are playing, we don't bet on the Saints games", Scotty adamantly declares.

Wagers for each game are different. Washing cars, eating strange flavors of jelly beans and downing baby food among others.

Before the Bengals v. Steelers game on Monday, the two made a bet on who would win. Scotty chose the Bengals and, unfortunately for him, they lost 3 to 27.

The couple's wager for the game was to have the loser stand on the corner by the Breaux Bridge birthday wall in the winner's outfit of choice.

The result was Scotty wearing a bright pink prom dress and holding a sign saying, "I lost a football bet to my wife."

If you're wondering about the latest bet this past Thursday, Lauren bet on the Rams. Friday afternoon she has an appointment to get the darkest level of spraytan possible as a condition of Scotty's wager. He adds, "she will be very orange"!

Lauren's results are in. Have a look for yourself. Lauren says the tan will darken in the next few hours.

Below are the posts of the video that kicked off the couple's viral status.

Lauren shared a video to her Facebook page as drivers honked and grabbed a quick picture while passing. One woman even handed Scotty a $1 bill.

Past bets documented on Lauren's Facebook page show the couple completing a variety of tasks including eating baby food and hot wings and braving a shower of ice water.
