World Cup Obsession: Awesome Ad For England

Take a look at this! It's a fantastic Carlsberg ad full of cameos by English sporting legends (in the same vein as this even more awesome cameo-studded Nike ad).

Talk about pumping you up! And I'm not even English! And I even cheered against them the other day!

Oh, I can't help myself:

This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in a silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
Feared by their breed and famous by their birth ... ! (Richard II. 2.1.40-51)
