You would be forgiven for thinking the concept of a "human foosball table" was a logical impossibility. After all, who has the time to train dozens of people to do simultaneous backflips?

But Minnesota's Brownton Area Resource for Kids was able to make the dream of a human foosball table a reality, all by paring the concept of foosball down to its most basic elements – and then blowing it up to an adult size.

As documented in a popular Facebook video, the Brownton version of foosball involves a side of seven players each: one goalie, three defenders and three attackers. The players all stand in a small wooden enclosure, holding onto a series of rotating poles while they try to shoot a soccer ball through the goal.

As BARK founder Mark Cacka told HLN, the game was built to give the town's kids something to do after its school closed down. (Brownton's children now travel to a neighboring town for their education.)



"I want stuff for our kids to stay in town," Cacka told the network.
