Not the greatest animation I know. It's really just a quick realisation of an idea to move a character's hips through the 8 key positions of an infinity loop. I'm not a soccer fan but the theme seemed to suit the movement. I hope the addition of the soccer ball doesn't make this a trick instead of dance and disqualify it from the weekly challenge.

Edit: Head movement added.

Another Edit: Wrist flick added.

@ Lollige - The ball is supposed to just roll back because he tilts his arms the other way. The trick would be done a lot slower but the 8 frame limit makes it look implausible at this speed. I've added a wrist flick to make it a little more convincing.

@ danbenevides - Thanks. Glad you like it. I guess it might be more amusing for Brazilians. I don't know if Pele ever did a celebration dance like this though.

Ha ha. Funny! Great idea, it made me laugh.

I really wonder how that ball stops so sudenly on the end when the hand does not even stop it. Otherwise, I like the idea :)

If his head moved it would have looked better.
