European soccer teams are known for their hysterically funny videos. A good example is the Champions League Final 2012 video that shows a woman on the sidelines openly picking her nose.
Joachim Low, the captain of the German National Team, also said that he was allowing his players to have sex, drink, and smoke prior to the games.
In other words, European soccer teams are known for being eccentric -- and the Euro 2012 Championship is bringing all of the top oddities out of the woodwork.
1. Spanish team holding hands and playing
As one of the most successful UEFA Champions League finalists, the commentator on this bizarre video is astute. Anything the 9-time winners of the Euro Cup do in a practice is likely to become a 'trick' for other teams. Seeing the Real Madrid club holding hands while practicing might look strange, but it is likely an insider tip for beating the opposition.
2. Ukrainian ferret predicts 2012 Euro Cup
A video from the U.K. tells us that there are a lot of psychic pets in the world, but Fred the Psychic Ferret is one of the best. He was introduced as the 'cutest fortune teller of them all' and was set to predict the outcome of the Euro Cup on June 8. Also from the Ukraine, Khyrak the Psychic Pig rivals Fred the Psychic Ferret by putting their snout out to predict the Euro 2012.
3. They stole this bit from Monty Python
When Germany played Greece in Poland for their part of the Euro Cup 2012, fans decided to take a page from the book of the British comedian group Monty Python. In the 1970s, the Monty Pythons staged a soccer match between Greek and German philosophers. In the 2012 re-enactment, 'Karl Marx' makes the finishing goal.
4. The Euro 2012 brings a Chinese war?
If you watch the Chinese promotion for the Euro Cup 2012, you will start to wonder if this soccer match is about war. In a few scenes, it looks like a tank is firing on players in the stadium. Among the other points of confusion in this video, there are also soldiers shooting at each other with machine guns.
5. Euro 2012's most dedicated fan
Didi Senft is a cyclist with a penchant for eccentric bicycles. This year, in honor of the 2012 Euro Cup, Senft built a soccer-ball themed aerodynamic ride in Germany and rode it all the way to the new stadium in Warsaw, Poland. Looking like the strangest Santa Claus you have ever laid eyes on, this is the Euro 2012 video that you will never forget. As if that was not enough, the bike has a foosball table, a megaphone, and a drum attached.
