What if We Reacted to Everyday Situations Like World Cup Fouls?
By Dan Casey on July 13, 2014
Watching the World Cup is one of my favorite things in the world as it brings soccer to a global audience and gives my usually non-sports-loving friends a reason to obsess over the beautiful game with me. Unfortunately, soccer is, increasingly, becoming a second home for Olympic divers in the off-season. No, not real Olympians, but they’re pretty darn skilled at taking a dive when they come into even the slightest of contact with another player. Ridiculous fouls, Oscar-worthy performances, and general on-field histrionics have become par for the course, much to the dismay of many fans. Canadian production company Fourgrounds Films realizes just how absurd of a trend this is and calls it out in the best way possible — by imagining if normal people reacted to everyday situations in the same way professional footballers do to perceived “fouls”. The result, while a little overlong, is definitely entertaining and worth your time.
