#GALAXY11: The Beginning

It’s FOOTBALLERS VERSUS ALIENS, starring the best footballers of today, and Victor Moses.

So aliens are invading Earth, and the extra-terrestrial invaders hang our fate on the outcome of a single football game. Franz Backenbauer is the boring manager-elect (Mourinho would have been a more interesting, if not better, choice – or fuck, I’m sure Sir Alex would come out of retirement to save the world). He selects Messi as Captain, and the likes of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Radamel Falcao, Iker Casillas, Oscar and Mario Gotze, to play humanity’s footballing messiahs.

I’m gonna save you guys the commentary (but in a nutshell: amazing premise that’s gonna just die in terms of artistic and sporting value because of the corporate KPIs this thing has to meet. Notice the skew towards players from Chelsea), but watch the awesomeness here. And hey, this is just The Beginning.
