Translation of the video :
Pétanque is a game like Bocce, in America. It is practised by 17 million players in France. Here is a wonderful video about this French game...
Hello, we'll explain to you the rules of Petanque...
Petanque's aim is to put as many boules as possible near the jack ("cochonnet"...)
The game is in 13 points. Each player has 3 boules...
Let's go !
Ah ! That's bad, Jean-Pierre !
Ah ! That's well done !
I take the boule...
Let's go !
Be careful, I'm going to "pointer" !
Come on !
Whaou ! That's good ! That's good !
Ah ! I wanted to "tirer", it's not good !
Yeah ! That's pretty bad !
This time, I "pointe", it would be better !
Go on !
Hey ! Benjamin "te mets la Fanny" !
That's a good "nature ball", Benjamin.
Yeah, you won !
That's good for Benjamin !
Then, each player introduces himself.
Then, the making-of !
The rest is in English.
Here is the video :
Enjoy it !!
