BBC’s World Cup trailer is a creative masterpiece [VIDEO]

When it comes to trailers to promote a network’s television coverage of a World Cup, few do it better than the BBC. In fact, this is the best trailer we’ve seen so far to get us excited for Russia 2018, which is much more superior than anything ITV and FOX has created.

Featuring an opera song written in the 1800’s during the Imperial era of Russia, it’s an apt soundtrack for the visually stunning trailer. Instead of just using film of memorable incidents from previous World Cup tournaments, the BBC has animated these key moments. That technique grabs our attention and doesn’t make us tire of watching this trailer over and over again as we look for things we might have missed the first time.

After watching this, it’s hard not to be excited for the 2018 World Cup.

    More than “The opera song”, “Ochi Chornie” (“Dark Eyes”) is traditional Russian love (romance) song. An excellent and appropriate metaphor for soccer, love and passion.
    Black eyes, passionate eyes,
    Burning and beautiful eyes!
    How I love you, how I fear you,
    It seems I met you in an unlucky hour!
