Budweiser Reinvents Soccer With A Game Called Poolball: Video

Budweiser have released a viral video to promote its beverage to United Kingdom residents. The video introduces a new invention by Budweiser, a new sport entitled Poolball which combines the best of soccer and pool.

According to Mashable, the game combines a 7-meter, Astroturfed pool table with soccer balls made up to resemble billiard balls. The rules are also the same as pool: You have to get the balls into the pockets, though you can’t use your hands. (Your head is OK.) The idea is to combine a daytime sport with nighttime clubbing.

Watch the video to see how it turned out. It definitely looks like a lot of fun to me, but I don’t imagine I’ll be seeing any poolball tables near me anytime soon!
