This Soft Drink Can Mutes World Cup Mania By Secretly Shutting Off TVs

It’s a well-known trick that’s liable to get you killed during the World Cup, but that’s why the folks behind Orangina are cleverly hiding tiny remotes beneath their cans, allowing those who’ve already tired of soccer to turn off every TV in their vicinity.

After all, for every soccer fan on earth obsessed with the World Cup, there’s at least another person — and then some — who couldn’t care less about the tournament. It might only happen once every four years, but there are still people who’d prefer a quiet night at the pub while it’s going on, and this simple hack can guarantee that. [YouTube via Taxi]
