Holy shit dude I wish I was kidding!
The guy in the video is former FIFA vice president Jack Warner, one of the FIFA officials who were arrested Wednesday following allegations of corruption and bribery from the US Department of Justice. Warner is currently out on bail which is why this video was made possible.
Warner accuses the US of being butthurt over their failed bid to host World Cup 2022. He wonders why the US is so eager to host the Summer World Cup 2015 “if FIFA was [as] bad” as they claim. He presents a printed news article to the camera, oblivious to the fact that the website he took it from is a satirical news portal. There’s no World Cup 2015, you dingus! I can’t believe The Onion successfully trolled a person, and an important and powerful figure at that!
He’s so serious I cringed and laughed and felt embarrassed for him all at the same time! And there’s even background music too! Jusko. I mean, a dun-dun-dun Hans Zimmer score is surely okay for films like Inception but not for a video in which you’re trying to plead for vindication. Come on. Kulang na lang visual effects, Mystica level na si kuya. Kakaloka.
I had to recharge my dying laptop just so I could post this on a Sunday midnight. Hay lord. I hope at least something good comes out of this FIFA hullabaloo. And I hope Barcelona beats Juventus and wins the treble this Saturday too, hihihi.
