To promote the pen/pencil brand Stabilo, we made a recreation of Robin Van Persie's magnificent goal during the 2014 World Cup match against Spain in flipbook form. I created the first and last part of the flipbook beforehand. After the actual match, a team consisting of myself and three other artist (full credits below) quickly recreated the actual goal, put together the flipbook, shot the above video and uploaded it on Youtube, all within 24 hours after the actual goal was scored.
After a few days the video had 1,5 million views on Youtube, and was featured on pretty much all Dutch mainstream media sites, as well as international media such as The Guardian
, Bleacher Report
and many others. It was also shown on TV shows Studio Brasil and VI Oranje.
Right after the World Cup final, we made a spiritual sequel in which we recreated the top 3 World Cup goals. The result was pretty much similar: over 1,5 million views on Youtube, and worldwide press coverage.
