The Thoughtful Animal

Animals Playing Soccer!

The official song of the World Cup, Waka Waka (This Time For Africa), by Shakira.

Totally awesome song. But also, animals playing soccer!

    I was secretly hoping that the video in this post would be from Animal Soccer World, which some consider to be the worst videogame ever made.

    I wouldn’t describe it that way, only because what makes it so amazingly terrible is that it’s not a game at all, but a hastily slapped together cartoon composed entirely out of stolen or crudely copied Disney animals, badly synced to a single voice actor’s horrible dialog.

    The animals do play soccer, however.

    It’s so mind-bogglingly bad that it approaches the level of outsider art, and the fact that you can’t actually play any of it just makes it that much more bizarre.
