It can be difficult promoting a film with the World Cup going on, so Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill have used the tournament to their advantage by producing a World Cup flopping tips video in support of 22 Jump Street.
The tutorial begins with Hill promising to offer tips "to get your team soccer points they did nothing to deserve." From there, they deadpan their way through a few hallmarks of the dark art. "Remember guys, don't feel guilty about this," Hill says. "These blind refs have already been bribed by a shady organization." (It's funny because it's true.)

"But if you flop really well, congratulations — you're hired to play the next for Chelsea!" he concludes with a kick of the ball. And somewhere in Brazil, Cesc Fabregas felt a little bit worse about his move.
As far as jokes about diving go, it's actually pretty funny. And given the uproar over Fred's flop in Brazil's 3-1 win over Croatia to start the World Cup, it couldn't be more timely.
