So the 2010 World Cup was filled with excitement, shocking results, controversies, and a lot of great goals. With Spain clinching the title, I thought I'd make a small music video of the story that unfolded over the past month.
 
Song: Black and White Town by The Doves.
  
The video is available in HD (Metacafe) and Myspace (I don't think that's HD).
 
Here are the links

Hope you like it!
PS: I may have missed many good goals, but I wanted to show the story of the WC rather than make a montage of the best goals.  Sorry for that :)

@Esten:  Thanks :) The embedded player is not showing up for me. Is it working for you or did you have to follow the link?

It's working perfectly fine here :-)

what memorable moments? >_> 
 
Edit: dude, you MADE that? props to you! that was some sweet editing! 

#8 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

Awesome. One thing I think you missed is Uruguay second goal vs Germany that was magic. 
        

  Still what a great video.

it was good, just reminds me of how much i hate suarez though.

Boom stuff. I really enjoyed it. Loved the energy.

Uh yeah.. that's true. I didn't put many of the great moments as I wanted to tell the story of the cup rather than create "the best goals" montage. And it was pretty hard work looking for clips and squishing them in this small song.  :(  

@Hockeymask27:
Yeah, that goal was awesome. But I felt that including goals from the 3rd place playoff would somehow not be right, so I skipped that match.

haha... Yeah, and him being hailed as a hero must have been even more frustrating for you!
 
@MauveForest: Thanks. Glad you enjoyed :)

AHHH I HAVE SOCCER FEVER!  I seriously never watched "futbol" until a couple of weeks ago, now I'm hooked.  My wife is a good player so I'm constantly asking stupid questions during the games... now I know how women feel! 
 
Oh, thanks for posting this!

#13 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -
@armaan8014:  actually, what i meant was "this world cup DIDNT have anything memorable to speak of. it sucked" 
your video is pretty fucking good though, 1+
#14 Posted by armaan8014 (5404 posts) -
@Ahmad_Metallic: oh! Got it :P  Yeah, the WC was pretty strange. A lot of tight games and unexpected results. Thanks :)
 
@jessej07: You're welcome! Glad to see you're catching on to football, it's a magical game!

Nice video dude! Excellent Work!    :)  
 
Sometimes the montage videos people throw together are not very good, but I loved this one!

#16 Posted by Carnage1290 (114 posts) -

Great video, but unless I missed it where was the most memorable thing in the Cup (for me anyway) US's goal against Algeria in the 91'st minute? Really good video still.

#17 Posted by DragoonKain1687 (702 posts) -

THis was one of the worst WC's ever. Lucky some enjoyed it. The final match was very dissapointing. Netherlands played it safe, and Spain did not risk much. Referee was lame, the De Jong foul against Alonso was Red Card material and nothing happened. 
 
Sadly, my team, Argentina, had a bad outcome against Germany, though I kind of expected such a result, since our defense is still green, and Maradona needs a year or more to fix that. 
 
If Im not mistaken, this WC had not only the lowest Goal Ratio (1.5 approx) but also the worst Referees.

great video man.

#20 Posted by arab_prince (2053 posts) -

That was an amazing video bud. Can you put it on youtube so I can favourite it. I would've preferred more of the events of the last game but still what you did was great. 10/10 :D 

#21 Posted by armaan8014 (5404 posts) -
@ScottishGamer: Thanks :)
 
@Carnage1290: 
I don't know how I missed that. I had downloaded that clip, possibly got mixed in the crowd of clips while editing. USA provided some great moments this cup, btw!
 
@DragoonKain1687:
I actually didn't want Spain to win as they didn't let their opponents score and didn't score themselves either. They made the final a little less exciting than it could have been :/ oh well. and yeah, hated the refrees this time.

No problem dude, I appreciate constructive criticism :) Thanks

Thanks duder
 
@arab_prince:
I hate youtube! They blocked my video so I had to upload it on Vimeo instead >:( I was scared they would do something like that, so I had written the copyright thing in the description, which somehow got erased after uploading. Here's the link, maybe it's not blocked in your country:

@armaan8014: damnit. it is blocked. why are FIFA such pansies? either way, its a great video bud

Do you think if I uploaded it again and kept the copyright info properly in the description, my video could be spared?

Very nice duder!

I would assume so. I have no idea why they took it down in the first place.
#26 Posted by armaan8014 (5404 posts) -
@arab_prince:  I'll try again then!
@Lemon: Thanks duder :)

@armaan8014:  Good video, man. I personally don't think this year's world cup was bad. It was unpredictable with predicted winners being shot down and the new guys rising to the top. Your video kind of gets that vibe. If anything more credit is due to you for not posting another montage vid with that Shitkira song, lol. *tips hat*
#28 Edited by armaan8014 (5404 posts) -
@innacces14: 
Yes, I too enjoyed the WC, especially the group stages. Loved seeing the small teams rise above teams like Germany, Italy etc in the group matches. Also, USA proved to be very entertaining and won my respect for hanging on till the end in almost all the matches.  And thanks.

Tried again, blocked again.

Just before I forget. I think that this is the new gif, changing the old Zidane Headbut.

 @DragoonKain1687:  That kick was crazy! Funny he didn't get sent off.
