Random person watches “Lord of the Rings” on plane while everyone sees Australia win

Australia advanced to the semifinals of the Women’s World Cup on Saturday after a dramatic penalty shootout victory vs. France that featured 20 kicks. This was the longest shootout in women’s or men’s World Cup history.

Australian fans watched on nervously from coast to coast and in the air on planes. Reaction clips to Cortnee Vine’s winning penalty have gone viral, but one in particular is making people laugh.

A flight full of Matildas fans watched on from thousands of feet in the air with nearly every person on board glued to their screens. Almost everyone was viewing the shootout… except for the one person watching “Lord of the Rings”.
