Video: French art collective re-enacts France v Germany penalty shootout, 1982

It’s not penalties, it’s art

This is pretty impressive in a geeky sort of way. A group of French artists took it upon themselves to re-enact France’s penalty shootout defeat to Germany in the 1982 World Cup.

The ambitious lot had initially hoped to do the entire match before spotting a few tiny logistical problems. Instead they focused on the shootout and reinterpreted television footage of spot-kicks at various locations around the French city of Lyon.

OTP is sorry to say that they put Phoenix From The Flames to shame.
