A bunch of seagulls invaded the field, but Melbourne Victory scored anyway

A flock of seagulls (not the band) swarmed the field when the Melbourne Victory played the Wellington Phoenix. Amid the flurry, Melbourne scored anyway.

The video, if you keep it small and squint, looks a little like someone dumped the contents of a few dozen down pillows over the stadium.

Conor Pain scored, putting the pain on Wellington in a 2-0 result. Sorry. That was bad.

Melbourne is tied for first in the league with 10 points after four games. Then they won Australian Twitter (a subsection of Weird Twitter, except the toilet water spins in the opposite direction):

No word yet if No You Shut Up‘s Big Dumb Bird was involved.

Anyway, here’s a gratuitous Flock of Seagulls video:
