Five Norwegian teenagers have achieved minor YouTube stardom with their eerily accurate impressions of the playing styles of footballers from the UK's Premier League.

The Norwegian Crab Pots, as the Stavanger-based group call themselves, have posted up hilarious take-offs of Liverpool's Steven Gerrard, Manchester United's Phil Jones, Chelsea Captain John Terry, Owen Hargreaves and others.
The two videos, 'How to play like Premier League players 1' and 'How to play like Premier League players 2', have been posted up on football fan sites across the UK and even featured on the Daily Mirror's website. 
"We started with the little bit unserious video 'How to Dive in Football', Endre Leikvoll Vignes  (16) told The Local.  "After we published 'How to play like Luis Suarez', it took it off completely! This is the video which got us really known. After 24 hours we had 300,000 views. And today this video has got 1,600,000 views, which is just sick!" 
The other members of the troupe are  Andreas Ims, Jon Kristian Myklebust, Patrik Worts, and Vegard Olsen, all of whom are 17 years old. 
Here's the latest video, posted yesterday with the original from May posted below.
