Brazil Fan Smashes His TV in the Street After Humiliating German Beatdown (Video)
Some people say there are five stages of grief. Other people say there are seven. But however many there are, I’m pretty sure that, on Tuesday, 200 million Brazilians were going through all of them simultaneously as they watched Germany hand their team the most humiliating defeat in the history of the World Cup.
Up in the stands of Estádio Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, men, women, and children wept openly. However, down in the streets there was rage. And at least one guy—who was probably a wee bit intoxicated—decided that his big screen television had to atone for the grave injustice inflicted upon the nation. So he smashed it on the ground…several times.
Sure, there was some old dude trying to stop him. But the TV smasher was having none of it.
Take a look:
It’s sad that, in this day and age, people are still holding their phones vertically to take videos. But hey, at least somebody captured the moment, because it was pretty funny.
