Soccer Players Kick Ass at Real, Impressive Game of Angry Birds

Part tribute to the casual video game of the moment, part homage to a series of Nike football commercials that ran a year or two ago, this clip shows a couple of college goalkeepers playing Angry Birds with trash cans, brick walls and anything else they can get their hands on.

While the Nike ads were computer-assisted, however, these kids look to be doing the real thing, making it all the more impressive. Well, except for the happy dances. We should count ourselves lucky goalkeepers don't celebrate more often.
