Extreme Street Soccer
The following video shows kids (maybe in Brazil, I'm guessing) performing extreme freestyle soccer tricks. The tricks are pretty cool, but of course they're fake. The flips may be real, but the soccer ball must have been digitally inserted into the shots. The video is a viral ad for a new playstation game, FIFA Street 3. It reminds me of that Nike ad featuring Ronaldinho that was going around two years ago.

That is a very cool video. The music is definitely Spanish, not Portuguese. I'm thinking one of the South American countries.

This video is a fake, it is impossible to do such things. I mean, kicking the ball from a guys head, I don't believe it!

Some really cool tricks there! But obviously some( mostly all) of them are fake. But a cool video nonetheless

agreed the vid is cool. It would be interesting to know if they actually did any of those tricks themselves... as it's pretty realistic so must have taken some serious CGIing I guess.

Personnaly I don't think this is fake, as I have personnaly witnessed such performances as the first part of a stage show a couple of years ago.

The point is, in this video these acrobats (or performers, you name it) were staged outdoors with the relevant clothing etc in order to produce a fake amateur street entertainment - in this regard the video is fake.

But the performance is definitely real.
