WTF! China’s Now TV ‘promote’ Euro 2012 with shocking animation of Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower & the Colosseum in flames
The good people at World In Sport have unearthed what must be the most bizarre Euro 2012 advert to-date.
Now TV, a Chinese broadcaster, have created a three minute anime video in which Euro 2012 is presented amid bloodshed and warfare in Europe.
Complete with images of Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Colosseum bombed out and wrapped in flames, the video also shows soldiers firing live rounds as a match is being played on the pitch.
It seems plain that Now TV have tried to align Euro 2012 with World War II imagery. Why they thought that’s a good idea remains a mystery.
