Henry is on fire, and other World Cup news

Just 10 days now until the World Cup kicks off in Germany. Once the tournament begins, we’ll probably end up saturating the blog with soccer news, hopefully some of it ad-related. So we’ll keep the previews short and sweet. Here’s a fun World Cup trailer created for the BBC by DFGW. (Good use of the Who, as well.) One of the weirder World Cup themes I’ve seen is Electronic Arts’ “Stop Holland” campaign, running in Germany. The TV spot and Web site combine to imagine Germany’s worst nightmare: Holland winning the World Cup. German gamers, though, can do their part to fend off the Dutch by beating them in EA’s computer soccer game. Via ’boards.
