Sean Garnier is a French legend but these young footballers were irritated when he hobbled in dressed as an old man to play football with them. They didn’t know what hit them until he decided to show them some moves.

Looks can be deceiving.

World football freestyle champion Arnaud Sean Garnier, dressed up like an old man, stumbles in to a local football match in Brazil with obvious intentions of joining in.

The players as well as the crowd are visibly irritated until 1:25 in the video where he decided to tell them what they were up against. The change in atmosphere and the mood of the crowd is instantly visible and the excitement even gets to the viewer.

Man, he’s good!

"Sean," a freestyle football star hailing from Sens, France, started his career like any other footballer. But luck wasn’t on his side - a series of injuries rendered him unfit for professional soccer. They  curbed his opportunities but didn’t dim his passion. He trained as a football instructor for a while and somewhere along the way discovered a new passion, urban free style football: a fusion of break dancing and soccer. Really?

Now, to say that Garnier can make a football dance would be nothing short of an understatement. Over the years, he has become a legend. He got crowned World Champion at the inaugural Red Bull Street Style World Finals by Red Bull in 2008 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The video is definitely a set up for the football World Cup but it’s still worth a watch.
