Soccer Celebration In a Bar refers to parodies of a video in which English football fans in a bar wildly celebrate a goal for their national team against Wales. In the parodies, the video the fans are watching are replaced with more innocuous clips in order to create the riotous response. The first popular parody of the clip was titled "Happiness comes from the simple things," leading future parodies to appear with this name.


On June 16th, 2016, YouTube channel Heart News West Country[1] posted a video of English football fans celebrating the English national team scoring against Wales in the 2016 Euro tournament (shown below).


On November 30th, 2018, YouTuber SpartaYoshi posted a parody of the clip titled "Happiness comes from the simple things" in which the video the fans are watching is of the Bouncing DVD Logo hitting the screen's corner. The video gained over 2.3 million views (shown below, left). On December 22nd, the user posted a green screen version of the clip, allowing others to create their own versions (shown below, right).

Over the course of 2019, the template inspired several popular parodies on YouTube. On April 26th, 2019, YouTuber LazyLucas posted a compilation of memes using the template, gaining over 28,000 views (shown below, left). On December 24th, 2019, user Daniel Tillotson posted a parody using a Yule Log video, gaining over 18,000 views in less two days (shown below, right). The video was covered by the Daily Dot.[2]
