Can’t Play In the World Cup? Play the Vuvuzela Game Instead!

Pin it

If you thought the noise you’d be most sick of at the end of the World Cup was Shakira’s "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)" (co-written by Fozzy Bear), allow me to introduce you to the vuvuzela, the noise maker preferred by deaf? discriminating World Cup fans. While you might think of the World Cup as a spectacle of pleasing sensations, like this one:

Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo's new ad for Armani underwear.

there are so many other, more painful things to experience as part of this world-wide event, and the droning scream of the vuvuzula is one of the most prevalent. So, how long do you think you could listen to its painful howling with your volume on full blast? Play the Vuvuzela Game and find out. I lasted eighteen seconds, but I wish I hadn’t.
