First there were choreographed goal celebrations, and they were entertaining. But it seems that on their long flight home from winning the World Cup in Brazil, the Germans put together a detailed plan to take prearranged football celebrations to the next level by coming up with a choreographed World Cup trophy reveal.
Upon landing back home in Berlin on Tuesday, the party quickly began with an open-top bus parade that led to a massive stage show in front of an estimated 400,000 fans at the Brandenburg Gate. And when the players arrived there with the trophy, they revealed it to all those fans with a bit of flair.
There was also dancing...
And whatever this was...
The World Cup trophy celebration bar has now been set. And it's been set rather high. Whoever wins in 2018 might need to get started on planning and costume design now if they're going to top this.
Meanwhile, expect to see "Deutschland: UnFOURgettable" at a playhouse near you very soon.
