Remake of 1982 World Cup

In honour of the World Cup, I present you with the greatest video on the entire internet! “Refait” is a remake of the 1982 World Cup match between France and Germany. Every detail of the fifteen last minutes of the match was painstakingly reconstructed by Pied La Biche. The sheer pointlessness of it all is hilarious. Enjoy.

    it must be a french thing.
    P&P, a french blog run by two guys, recently did a hilarious remake of fashion blogger garance doré’s “a month in fashion” video.

    you really need to watch them separately, at the same time, then separately again, to see all of the hilarious substitutions. (they use a banana to replace a new york taxi cab)

  • it’s great, had they done this with footage of unsuspecting strangers, would’ve been more entertaining for me. = )

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.
