Virals from my Dad…

My dad loves the internet. Not when it doesn’t work, obviously, that makes him cross, but he seems to appreciate the vastness of it all and enjoys sending me little clips and montages of images/ films that have presumably gone viral in the world of him and his mates…..

Most of the stuff he sends has a tendency to the cringe worthy (funny animals and scantily clad women are obviously popular amongst 75 year olds) but every now and then, my interest in piqued ……

This one of a market on a train line is particularly excellent. Watch it until the end and see how the the tracks almost completely disappear..

The second one is of Boyanka Angelova, a Bulgarian gymnast performing a routine with a ball that really is remarkable in its grace and perfect execution. Filmed in 2008 at a tournament in Italy, I can only imagine how good she must be now, three years later, and I suspect we will hear more of her in the lead up to the 2012 Olympics.

I like the bit at about 1 minute when she does a forward roll and flicks the ball into the air with her foot… how long would you have to practice that, so that the ball went where it was supposed too…

Watch out at the very end when Boyanka catches the ball with her feet whilst lying down and the woman in the background bounces around, she knows how good the routine was….
