Video: Christopher Mintz-Plasse shows his soccer expertise in Brazil

With the semi-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup being played this week, it seemed appropriate to post this video featuring actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Best known as “McLovin” from Superbad (and the avatar for @TheAPparty on Twitter), Plasse is also a soccer expert, as he demonstrated in Brazil for Funny or Die.

Somebody find that guy a bar where they’re watching the World Cup games. Or just buy something from Adidas, since that whole video was kind of an ad for the sports apparel giant.

Personally, I found it refreshing to see someone who knows less about soccer than I do. And I even played it. Doesn’t everyone? That is, until you have to be good at it, like at the high school level. Also, I can never find the party either. Maybe I’m not invited.
