Ibrahimovic putting boot to Cassano's head goes viral on YouTube twice: viral video spotlight
Thursday 12 May 2011
Foot- and head-related banter between AC Milan teammates Ibrahimovic and Cassano goes viral on YouTube, twice.
Two videos of the incident, "
Zlatan Ibrahimovic kicks Antonio Cassano in the face" and "
Ibra Chuta a cara de Cassano" (roughly translated as 'Ibra kicks Cassano') have both gone viral on YouTube, the first video attracting over 350,000 views and the second over 400,000.
The first video of the incident unfolds in real time whereas the second video has been edited to show the kick repeatedly. Both videos are in YouTube's 20 videos 'most watched today' on May 11.
The obviously light-hearted incident comes after Italian club AC Milan won its first Serie A title since 2004 win after a 0-0 draw against Roma on Saturday, May 7. After the match Cassano is being interviewed when team AC Milan teammate Ibrahimovic decides to ‘lightheartedly' kick him in the head, leaving Cassano standing but bewildered.
The video has led YouTube users to question Cassano's response to the incident, with many such as 'Keegion' (jokingly) stating "if that had happened in the game, he'd [Cassano] probably still be rolling on the ground."
This is not the first time Zlatan Ibrahimovic has lashed out at other players in jest such as against Christian Wilhelmsson ( http://bit.ly/mAxOFk) and he has also been on the receiving end of similar jokes such as this one by Luca Antonini ( http://bit.ly/iuWOe1).
