In the age of the Internet, anyone can become a video producer with the right software and a few clever clicks of the mouse.

But credit for creativity — and perhaps a little crassness — goes to the Register, a British Web site for oddities and ends, and its readers.

The Vultures, as the staff refers to itself, has collected a number of reimagined versions of Zinedine Zidane’s infamous head-butt of Italy’s Marco Materazzi in the World Cup final.

Zidane and the French lost the match, but his vicious move will live forever online, where you can see how different people — the Germans, French, Italians, Americans and of course the media — supposedly viewed the event.

There’s even a take on how Zidane may have saved Materazzi’s life. … as well as that of a Web cliche.
