Football freestyle crew embark on epic World Cup tour

Football News

Brazilian football is famed the world over for an unrivalled freedom of expression and set of tricks and flicks that are studied and copied by freestylers across the planet, but Dude Perfect and his crew could give the very best a run for their money on the evidence of their last viral video sensation.

Dude Perfect is a prolific poster of online gold and decided to use the World Cup as his latest inspiration, filming for nine days across Brazil and bringing back five minutes of footage that made the final edit and deserves your full, undivided attention.

A simple stepover or juggle just doesn't cut it for this lot, with hopefuls on Copacabana beach treated to everything from pure humiliation to a ball being made to disappear completely before their eyes.

The atmosphere of the piece also helps to encapsulate perfectly the sound of spirit of everything that has been fantastic about this World Cup, which has overcome early problems to prove a wonderful festival of football that will be remembered for a very long time to come.

Dude Perfect's work is a collaborative effort and features some of the very best football artist in the world, including Brazilian magician Ricardinho and world football freestyle champion Sean Gariner, who all strut their stuff at various points of a true labour of love for the filmmakers.

Check out the fruits of their labour at the top of the page, although don't get excited and try out too much of this at home, you will most likely fall flat on your face just as I did!
