eighteen Funny and stuff

This was run during the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Comments on Youtube show that it apparently really offends soccer fans, but I think it is absolutely hilarious. If you have ever seen rugby, then you will find this commercial funny and want to watch the rugby world cup.
So many people watch soccer and enjoy it, well most of it. This commercial, although very simple, really plays on that one part of soccer that people hate, the 3 minute sessions of rolling on the ground after a slight nudge. Very funny and gets people that already love rugby and also that like soccer but maybe want something a bit more exciting.
A couple things that could have been better:
“Soccer is for girls.” — I think this could be better. As a girl rugger, this pisses me off.
The super generic soccer uniforms take something away from the commercial. Rugby beats soccer even in fancy jerseys, and these jerseys would equal higher production value.
Another funny rugby ad for scotch:
