Monday, July 31, 2006 : Romando vs Selatan
Mike says:
Gah! Exams are around the corner once again... I freaking hate this year. Plus I freaking don't wanna be immune to the exam pressure by the time my O-levels are here.
Motha' pluck the exams la... But as I am barely trying to be a *cough* good boy, I shall study hard and try my very best to ace it. So yeah, sorry readers, but come mid-August I won't be able to update as often... = (

So whadaya know, it's crunch time once again. knnccb...

You know I've been finding it hard not to be able to post any entries on football.
I mean you get what I mean right? World Cup season is just over and I'm finding it hard to let go of the fever.

For example, I can't stand reading the sports section and there are only three pages of football instead of eight, there's no more Sportscentre during the weekends, I still think Zidane is the greatest footballer on the planet and so on...

So yeah, after a couple of posts laying off the footy, I just can't take it anymore- I'm posting about football once again.
Well, not really. Cuz like the Footy Humour post, this football entry will have the MikeDotOrg touch to it.

Remember during the World Cup season, Nike were airing these football ad videos. Well, one of them was about Portuguese twinkletoe Cristiano Ronaldo competing against Swedish striker Ian Thorpe Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

So one day, Amir and I had this brilliant idea to come up with our very own version of that video.
I mean look at the similarities between us and them, Amir's a tall skilled beanpole just like Zlatan while well, Ronaldo IS my idol...

So yeah, the thought of us making such a ngam video for us seemed like a challenging idea...

The shooting of our version of the video itself was a tough challenge for us...
Because unlike my other stupid videos, we had to follow about 80% of the ad itself and that wasn't easy especially because Amir is more of a fancy-skills footballer and I'm more technical-skills player... well, technically.

So you get it right? It's different to follow up each other.
Put i this way lah, what happens if you put Ian Thorpe, and Kenny Sia in a synchronised swimming competition? Surely hard to swim in synch with each other right? Hor...

Another problem was our dear friends KJ and Seng Yau didn't really dedicate much commitment to help our video and that really wasted alot of energy and time.... but they gave commitment none the less, so I give them credit for that.
The other two dudes, Chiak and Don, didn't cooperate much either so that wasted even more time (the talking and the arguing..geez)

Oh and another problem we faced was Amir just kept laughing whenever he held the cam (you'll see why later).

So without wasting anymore of your precious time, here's our rendition of Ronaldo vs Zlatan: Romando vs Selatan.

I'd like to say that the compilation of the videos were very damn sloppy and I apologise for that.
Oh and before you ask, yes Amir's free kick did hit the lampost but my volley only went through the hole only when the camera wasn't rolling.

And yes, the freestyle sequence section is crap because I can't immitate Amir's tricks and likewise.

Other than that, enjoy the video.
