"He Always Beat Me at Subbuteo"

Ever noticed a recurring theme in the lyrics, single artwork, and music video of the Undertones' hit "My Perfect Cousin"? No? Well, it turns out the band was referencing a table top soccer game known throughout the world called Subbuteo. Much like soccer, most Americans couldn't care less about it. Upon first glance it looks like a soccer version of table top hockey. However the following video proves that people take it very, very seriously in other parts of the world. Go figure.

PS. The sweater choices alone make the Undertones video a mandatory watching.
