It's origin is unknown, but it's the latest craze in Europe, where it's called 'Bubble Ball' or 'Bubble Football' (as in soccer)! Two teams of players dressed in inflatable, well, bubbles, all trying to kick a ball into a goal, meanwhile crashing into anything that moves.

It's certainly not a game for the timid, or claustrophobic, for that matter. But Bubble Ball is being played by folks of all ages across the Continent, and it sure looks like fun! And it appears from watching the video that the real goal isn't to put the ball in the net, but to lay out as many of your opponents as possible. Now, this game may be a fad in parts of Europe...but THAT is as American as you can get!
