What’s great about this video is seeing the intense public use of an unusual kind of playground. In this case, it is the ground and a pair of whimsical goalposts that enable the imaginations of hoards of Swedes to run wild. The field is located in Malmo, and is the creation of artist J.F. Strom, who has “taken the most popular sport and through simple changes in the playing conditions, created a new kind of a game, or a new kind of football where one does not have to be the best to win, because the elements of serendipity and luck are constantly present in play.”
