With a cumulative TV audience of 26 billion, World Cup Soccer is big business. No surprise that countries pull out all the stops to bid for hosting duties. Australia may be a long way from South America and Europe, but they know how to tempt the world's 'footie hooligans': beach babes, back flip kicks, head-butting sailors, outback aboriginals, and playful sunny city dwellers - all united by a checkered bouncing ball. If it doesn't win them the World Cup bid, this beautifully-shot video will surely help recruit the tourists, making it worth its inevitably high price.
