Indonesian Kids Play Soccer with Flaming Coconuts

Flaming coconut ball is way better than soccer

Boarding school kids in Java have devised a game is a lot like soccer. Except, instead of a boring, old, regular soccer ball, they use a coconut. And not just any boring, old coconut. A coconut that’s been set on fire.

The kids started this game to “test the guts” of other students. Which illustrates a very big difference between America and other parts of the world. While we convict students and universities for hazing rituals because some freshman can’t hold his Lemon Drop Shooters, the small island of Java makes TV shows out of children laughing while playing a game that involves them kicking a flaming coconut ball.
