The Example Of Neymar

Today I bring the curtain down on my Buskerfest series with one more act from the group finale show. I featured Les Dudes in the opening post of this series, and I close with them. Philippe and Senja make up two thirds of the troupe of acrobats, and they took part in the finale, starting with him juggling. While she distracted him with a horn.

Then it moved into the hoops. She sang, as you can see in this video I did of the act.

He was in the midst of hoop action when she blew the whistle on him and red flagged him.

And so he did what pretty much any soccer player would do in similar circumstances and faked a bad leg in a classic soccer dive. Neymar is apparently infamous for this sort of thing. Philippe did it better.

Then Senja took over with the big hoop, and the pair finished up their splendidly entertaining and funny act.


  1. Apologies for the late post- I didn't doublecheck the scheduled time.

  2. ...oh, I've been that often. That's a huge hula hoop!

  3. I wonder if anyone makes a healthy wage at busking.
