Rafael Van der Vaart Does Kick-Ups With His Gum (Video)

This is both amazing and disgusting at the same time!

During a pre-match warm-up, Tottenham’s Rafael Van der Vaart put on an incredible display of skill by spitting his gum onto his feet and performing several kick-ups with it.  That would be the amazing part.  As for the disgusting part, that came when he decided it would be a good idea to cap off this wonderful trick by kicking the gum back into his mouth.

I don’t care how much flavor was left in that piece of gum, this is one instance where it is clearly alright to let the object hit the ground during a game of kick-ups.
