The World Cup tournament in Brazil is a month-long event showcasing the fancy footwork of the sport's great strikers -- the Cristiano Ronaldos, Lionel Messis, etc.

And for good reason.

But, hey, let's not forget about Remi Gaillard.

Gaillard is a comedian from France who seems to have a strong grip on the soccer's finesse side. His trick shots are something to behold.

In a video posted to his popular YouTube channel on Friday, which has been viewed more than five million times as of Tuesday afternoon, Gaillard puts his legitimate flare skills on display.

Gaillard performs 32 trick shots in total -- one for each team competing in the World Cup. The 39-year-old uses several props, including a Frisbee and spray paint cans, while completing his moves in rundown settings like an abandoned building and graffiti-filled alley.

Although each trick likely took dozens of takes, Gaillard does a great job of acting casual throughout the montage.

Watching the full eight minutes is recommended, but if you're stretched for time, consider stopping at the one-minute mark (shopping cart trick); 2:30 mark (sewer trick); and 4:20 mark (fishing bucket trick).

You won't regret it.
