Soccer with Binoculars



This video cracks me up. I cannot stop laughing every time i see it. To me it appears that this game is completely spontaneous and is not rigged in anyway. I am sure that if it were to continue to go on for a full game, there would be many injuries assuming players were actually competing for something.
It would be interesting to see this video from the perspective of the players too... Another aspect of the video that i enjoy is their soccer uniform. The random coloured stripes seem to add to the humour of such an activity. I would love to try something like this myself, or set up an event where contestants or athletes have to play a sport or game with binoculars on. Enjoy!

Totally brilliant and hilarious. I definitely think this could or should inspire some performance idea, sport related or not, where binoculars are strapped to the head like this. I love it! And the uniforms, as you mentioned, only add to the greatness here.

Another great thing about the uniforms is that (as far as I can tell) they don't even serve the purpose of dividing the players into teams. Great video!

One of my favorite YouTube videos. It reminded me of a Top Gear show which featured a 5 vs. 5 car soccer match (link below).
