Goooooooaaaaallll! – Click above to watch the video after the break

Football fans – or, if you happen to live in the United States... soccer fans – are well aware that 2010 is the year of the FIFA World Cup. The international competition has been run every four year since 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not contested because of World War II. Stay tuned for this year's festivities in June and July from South Africa.

What does soccer football have to do with cars? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Unless you are Renault, it would seem. The French automaker has been associating itself with the sport for the last few years with a series of print and video advertisements for its Megane hatchback.

One such ad, which you can find conveniently pasted after the break, shows exactly what might happen if one overly exuberant Megane-owning football fan misjudges the power of his own free kick. Click here to see more funny car commercials from veryfunnyads.com.

      I have a similar story about cars and breaking things with balls. Our van was in the garage with the back door up. I was in the driveway waiting to go play tennis and was just bouncing the ball up and down off the strings. The ball got away and bounced into the street. I ran out after it and took a blind forehand towards the garage from the middle of the street. The ball went up the 50' driveway into the van and broke the inside rear view mirror. I did not realize what happened until the next day when I got in the van to run an errand and there was the tennis ball on the dash and shards or glass all over the interior.
