I’ve never heard of Paul, a “psychic” octopus in Germany until last night. After the match between the Netherlands and Uruguay, it was revealed on the news that Paul, when consulted about tonight’s match between Germany and Spain chose a mussel from a jar with the Spanish flag on it ahead of one in a similar jar bearing the German flag.
So far, Paul the octopus has been correctly predicted every World Cup game for Germany (5-0). His pick of Spain over Germany in tonight’s match has caused some alarm but German football fans should have some comfort knowing the “psychic” octopus has been wrong in the past. Check out the video of Paul’s pick of Germany vs Spain World Cup 2010 Semi-Final Match below.
