I'm sure many of you are familiar with German music culture and the fact that Germany is rather devoted to classical music.

I'm sure many of you also know that Germany lost to Spain on 07.07.2010 in the the semi-finals of the World Cup, so they didn't make it to the finals.

Ironically, this event took place on the same day as Gustav Mahler's 150th Birthday... so many Germans skipped out on attending Mahler concerts (his symphonies, of which are characteristically very long, nearly 2 hours in length).

This clip shows how Germans in Berlin react when Spain scores its winning goal in the 73rd minute of the World Cup semi-finals.

I think it's pretty clever.

I love these!

Even more off topic, this Cage work makes the Vuvuzela look busy.

Enjoy!
