Those of you watching the Euro 2020 matches may have caught this bizarre sight:
As for what's going on here, Volkswagen is the Official Mobility Partner for the competition—and also the sponsor of the Official Match Ball Carriers. They've used their leverage to bump at least one of the kids' turns at bringing the ball out to the pitch, replacing them with a remote-controlled scale model of their ID.4 for the opening game between Italy and Turkey.
The next time a kid carrier gets bumped will be for the final match, on July 11th.
We applaud VW for providing this opportunity for even kids to complain that their jobs are being taken by machines.
