Astonishingly Beautiful World Cup Animation

Today the 2014 World Cup kicks off in São Paulo, and to celebrate the greatest sporting event in the world we are watching this incredible video by filmmaker and artist Richard Swarbrick, who takes the term "The Beautiful Game" literally. He has animated famous World Cup goals in a painterly, impressionistic style. The results are breathtaking. Is it strictly geeky? No, but we have to tip our hats to such a talented artist. You can check out more of his work here, including a fantastic (and geeky!) Doctor Who 50th Anniversary animation from Swarbrick.
