BBC 5 Live Launches Big Mexican Wave Campaign for 2010 World Cup

Today marks the launch of a brand-new campaign by BBC Five Live to encourage soccer fans to create the mother of all Mexican Waves from around the world.

To launch the campaign, BBC Five Live collected snapshots of key individuals doing the Mexican Wave and pieced them all together into the above video. The people featured include yours truly, Miley Cyrus, rapper Dizzee Rascal, LL Cool J, Richard Hammond (from Top Gear) and many others.

At the Big Mexican Wave website, users upload photos of themselves in one of four Mexican Wave poses, which the site then automatically turns into a 30 second Mexican Wave video of the user, combined with 5 live presenters and celebrities. The finished result can then be shared on Facebook, Twitter and via email.

Every person who uploads their photo will get a completely unique Mexican Wave – each video will feature the user alongside a random selection of photos from other users’ uploads and celebrity pictures.

At the end of the World Cup all photos will be turned into the Big Mexican Wave where you can watch yourself in the ultimate celeb packed Mexican Wave video, where you could see yourself supporting your beside the stars.
