If BBC Sport could be as creative and slick with their live football coverage as they are with their promotional trailers, the Beeb would rule the TV roost once again and kick Sky Sports to the gutter.
Such is the artistry and fine detail that’s included in BBC Sport’s trailer for Euro 2008 (see below). The video features la creme de la creme of European footballers featured on animated football cigarette cards with Mozart’s symphony no. 41 playing majestically in the background.
Watch Cristiano Ronaldo centre stage as he dazzles the audience inside a Vienna concert house. Also featured are Marco van Basten, Fernando Torres, Gennaro Gattuso, Michael Ballack and William Gallas. This is top quality from Euro 2008 and it’s definitely a touch of class from the BBC.
Thanks to Tokyo Toffeeman for the news tip.
