Video of the Week: BBC’s Brazil 2014 Montage

After a stinker at Euro 2012 (slow-motion footage offset with an awful cover version of “Thriller”) a lot of people were looking at the BBC and wondering if they’d lost their montage touch. 2014 represents a huge return to form and with the raw materials at hand from the tournament itself, they daren’t misjudge it. The selection of footage is excellent and bringing in Woodkid’s “Run Boy Run” inspired as it brings both the dramatic note and triumph in equal measure. I miss Brasil ’14 already and this video will remain bookmarked for a long time to come. Euro ’16 better be good…
