Intermission: Beautiful Animation of Gareth Bale Playing the Beautiful Game

An artist spent 35 hours transforming video of soccer star Gareth Bale into an affecting animated short. It was worth every second.


Richard Swabrick spent 35 hours transforming highlights of 21-year-old footballer Gareth Bale's magnificent play against Inter Milan into these affecting few minutes of animation. Soccer fandom is not a prerequisite for enjoying this short video, but those with a passion for the beautiful game will likely find this all the more lovely.
