War Breaks Out Over Europe As China’s ‘Now TV’ Release Awesomely Baffling Euro 2012 Advert (Video)

By Chris Wright

With only 18 days to go until it all cracks off in Poland and Ukraine, China’s Euro 2012 television rights holders Now TV have rolled out a new anime-style advert to tantalise the nation – an advert which sees post-apocalyptic renderings of European landmarks such as the Colosseum, the Eiffel Tower and the Houses Of Parliament reduced to smouldering rubble, followed by a football match and a lovely song, followed by a sequence which sees all-out war break out over the previously mentioned European landmarks as soldiers, tanks and bombers further raze the continent to the ground – only to be defeated by the footballers and their powerful slide tackles THEN a rainbow lion descends from the sky and makes the world fall apart just before the winning goal gets lashed in…

Makes…sense?

Mucho thankos to @101greatgoals for rooting out a working link!
