Excited for the World Cup yet? No? If not, watch ESPN’s advert for the summer tournament and replay it until you are covered with goosebumps.
The biggest sporting event in the world begins in just a few short weeks and promos like this will only make the wait more agonising!
ESPN decide to go with the slogan ‘The game was not born here, but this is where it lives.’ A statement that is pretty hard to argue with.
And if the football isn’t getting you excited then the Brazilian culture might get you pumped; sunshine, beaches, voluptuous women and the Samba beat. All awaiting the lucky souls who get to experience it in the flesh, admired from afar by those of us watching on television.
