River Plate Fan's 'QR Code' Tattoo Is Now Useless After YouTube Remove Video For Copyright Issues

This might be the most heartbreaking story of the week. So if you're just catching up with this fascinating tale, a River Plate fan decided to get a tattoo with a QR code that shows the goals from the Copa Libertadores final against Boca.

In the video that has since gone viral, the talented tattooist is seen scanning the barcode on the River Plate fan's leg with a phone, which immediately directs him to the YouTube highlights clip. Isn't the internet a marvelous thing?

Oh, hang on a minute...


In a moment that this River Plate fan should have really thought of beforehand, YouTube have decided to take the video down from its website because of copyright infringement.

It looks like Boca fans have had the last laugh on this occasion.


River won 5-3 over two legs, with Juan Quintero's stunning extra-time strike breaking the deadlock in the second leg. He honestly thought he could relive these goals from his leg for the rest of his days, but YouTube have all but ruined that prospect.

I think we have learnt a valuable lesson here. If you want to get a tattoo like this, don't share it on the internet because someone will almost definitely try and spoil your fun.


You've got to feel for the lad.
