WATCH: Don't Let it Touch the Floor! Balloon World Cup Video Goes Viral

This Instagram video comes from something called the Balloon World Cup, an event organized by Barcelona soccer star (and Shakira's partner) Gerard Pique, after watching a Tik-Tok video of some American children playing the game during the Covid lockdown in 2020.

What is the game, you ask?

We've all played it before: hit the balloon before it touches the floor!!

This competition brought together players from 32 nations. Two players faced off on an 8 meter-by-8 meter court with obstacles placed in the way, such as living room furniture, and even a car!

This inaugural tournament was won by Peru's Francesco de la Cruz, winning the final over Germany's Jan Spiess.
