Vuvuzelas, that is; and if you’re any type of follower of IF, you already know we approve of anything having to do with the World Cup and vuvuzelas, unlike those hating gossip blogs. Plus, Leo stars in Inception which, quite possibly, looks like the best movie ever. According to the gossip post, the image(s) of DiCaprio and his trusty vuvuzela came from the Germany/Argentina game.
Hopefully, Leo was pulling for ze Germans, otherwise, he didn’t have much reason to toot his own horn.
Not a big console guy, but if this actually happened, I’d probably buy an XBox 360 or a PS3. The synchronized buzzing, in time with the graphic prompts, would be almost too much awesome for one person to handle. Oh, and a vuvuzela video game controller? Count me in.
So far, anyway — and that’s no offense to Siphiwe Tshabalala and his brilliant strike that broke the seal on the World Cup scoring sheet, either. Brazil wound up beating North Korea, 2-1, and it was Maicon’s brilliant knuckle/curve thingy that started the festivities off.
Such a brilliant goal is worth breaking out the vuvuzelas for. Hell, it’s even worth downloading the iPhone vuvuzela app, just so you can join in the fun.
The incessant buzzing you’ve been hearing? The unending sound resembling the beginning of Norma Jean’s “And There Will Be A Swarm Of Hornets” going on throughout your World Cup viewing pleasure? It’s not going away; at least, not this year. FIFA President Sepp Blatter has defended the, in some cases, hated rubber trumpet-like instruments, via Twitter, of course.
“…I don’t see banning the music traditions of fans in their own country. Would you want to see a ban on the fan traditions in your country?”
So if you’re a vuvuzela hater, get used to it. Maybe you can adopt the “FFUUUUUUUU” guy’s mentality:
