This weekend, French soccer battle the Classico (Olympique de Marseille VS Paris Saint Germain) will be broadcast live and exclusively on Canal+.

In a promotional ad for the broadcast, agency BETC Paris suggests an unexpected explanation for all things going wrong during the game: what if it's down to voodoo? The film, directed by Stephen Cafiero of Rita, shows supporters from each of the rival teams in front of their TV-screens, taking turns in trying to influence the game by sticking pins in voodoo dolls.

The campaign also includes a website that lets supporters "sting" a virtual doll of the rival team.
