VIDEO: Juventus’s Douglas Costa pretends to be short

Effective illusion videoed at home.


Juventus winger Douglas Costa uses his coat to give the impression he’s really short in a recent video on the social media platform TikTok.

With the Italian football leagues still suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak and not due to return until later this month, the Brazil international has been using his time in isolation to create much ridiculous content.


Turning away from the camera, the 29-year-old bends over forward before lifting the hood of the jacket over his back and then does a little dance.

Although usually standing at just under 5 foot 8 inches tall, the effect of his illusion is to create a much shorter height.
