YouTube right now! Rémi Galliard's amazing trick-shot compilation
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
Moonlighting from making what’s likely the best collection of pranks in human (or at least YouTube) history, France’s Rémi Galliard has hopped on board the trick shot trend with a six-and-a-half-minute-long video of soccer tricks.
It’s become a annual tradition for Galliard to upload a video of himself improbably kicking a soccer ball to knock over targets and land in trash cans (see 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007). And once again, it’s set to heavy metal and spliced with footage of stadiums filled with cheering, soccer-crazed Europeans.
This time, he shows off his knack for knocking over bottles from improbably far distances, kicking a ball into a toy Frisbee-style disc he just chucked into the air, and perhaps most impressively, sending the ball multiple times into moving shopping carts and rolling tires.
The highlight, though, comes at 5:03. We won’t spoil it, but we’re glad to not be on Galliard’s production crew.
