As enjoyable as the skill games on FIFA are, we imagine they are much more fun to play in real life.
Well, one YouTuber clearly thinks along the same lines as he created one of the challenges in real life and ended up convincing his dad that he was actually FIFA 19.
‘NellyGotBored’ made the decision to bring the ground pass silver game from FIFA 17 to real life and went very big with the project, using a Phantom 3 Pro drone to get the aerial view and a couple of editing programs to make it look as realistic as possible.
And it’s fair to see he did just that. The location was similar to the sort of training ground you get on FIFA games, he had five players knocking the ball around and then the effects, with the scores, just complete the whole production.
Then, to top it all off, he pranked his dad – who only eventually clicked on when he spotted one of his son’s mates in the footage.
Nelly had been wanting to produce something like this for a couple of years now and though it was a difficult process, he’s more than happy with the end result.
“I randomly got this idea when I was playing Fifa 17 skills game,” he told SPORTbible.
“I’m always looking for ways to create funny, interesting, unique, viral content. When I found out my friend got a drone and knew how to fly it, I immediately started planning how I could make this video. I knew editing it would be a brutal grueling process but worth it in the end. T
“The idea to park my dad came to me as soon as I saw how good the quality of the drone footage was. I knew with some solid editing I could genuinely fool him.”
Earlier this year, we saw a FIFA glitch occur in real life when Duisburg’s No.1 Mark Flekken gifted the opposition striker a goal in a German second tier game against Ingolstadt.
The Dutch goalkeeper turned his back on play and stood behind the goal-line, fetching his drink – allowing Stefan Kutschke to score the most simple of goals.
