We understand the logic, everyone wants to be like Andrea Pirlo, and Pirlo takes awesome Panenka penalties.
But, before you muster up the courage and try it, it might be an idea to practice first. As one Irish amateur player found out much to YouTube's amusement earlier this season.
This penalty, taken by Swords Celtic's Mark O'Brien, fails on multiple accounts. An awful spot-kick is one thing, an awful Panenka just doubles the embarrassment - especially when a keeper just stands there and catches it.
The Celtic's chancer scuttles up to the ball, and offers a half-hearted chip that barely leaves the ground. The ball bounces into the arms of the goalkeeper. The shame.
It's only been seen by 7,900 people so far - that could change soon though.
Pirlo against Joe Hart at Euro 2012 is one thing, Mark O'Brien on a cow patch of a pitch in rural Ireland? Not quite the same.
