Davis Paul doesn’t play soccer professionally anymore—the California native and Berkeley grad had a brief stint with the Chicago Fire—but he’s still known to kick the ball around with coworkers.

This is the kind of video that you watch and can’t help but feel a big, stupid grin spread across your face, even though you know you’re being sold something.

Paul works at GoPro as a filmmaker, producing a number of videos intended to demonstrate the camera’s sporting capabilities. Say what you will about it, but the camera’s clearly versatile. We’ve seen it strapped to an angry ram, a soaring eagle, and a fireman during a rescue.
