As recommended by Jetsam: German football fans (a predominantly male species) regularly partake in a certain ritual which involves squatting on the floor first (1), engaging in a bit of antiphonious call and response (2) and concluding with bout of jumping up and down, clapping their hands and singing ‘Humba humba humba täterää, täterää, täterää’ (3).

The example below was recorded during the soccer world cup – German police men are not exactly known for their friendly attitude towards football fans, so this is a pleasant surprise. The guy sticking his head into the ‘green white partybus’ [one of the lines used in (2), green white being the conventional colour of German police vehicles] is using their electronic megaphone, with his chant blaring from the the roof of the car:-) Nice!

  1. hey–btw: you got me totally hooked on that weird mind-control show you posted about. i really need to do some research on that–i need to know what the trick is.

  2. That’s hilarious, did I catch something like a scheis Italia in there?

  3. yep–that may have jinxed us in the end. 🙂

  4. Scheiß Italien, that’s right – and if we put Darren Brown and Youtube together, Jetsam may have spotted the reason why Germany lost the World Cup to Italy.
