Umbro is coming out with its new Cosmos Blackout sportswear—a collection of black-on-black items celebrating the classic (and recently relaunched) New York soccer team of the 1970s. To promote it, the brand has released an animated video commemorating the New York City blackout of 1977. The video is narrated by Brazilian defender Carlos Alberto Torres, who happened to arrive in New York on the day of the blackout to sign with the team. It's a nice animation and a nice little memory.
