[Film] FIFA and the Perfect Con

Today marks one year since the 2014 World Cup kicked off, so what better time to upload a tweaked and polished version of FIFA and the Perfect Con: made before and during the tournament. I released the film in three parts as the situation in Brazil unfolded but here it is in all its glory.



What next? We all know FIFA is a tangled mess of deceit and corruption; recent allegations and arrests have surprised precisely nobody. My only hope is that once their cancerous core has been removed, football can become the force for good that I know it can be. Imagine World Cups run for people over profit and for sport over sacrifice. Is that really too much to ask?

Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to my crowdfunding campaign which raised a good half of the production costs. With the news recently that FIFA's own film, United Passions, opened to a laughably bad $607 at the US box office I thought it'd be fun to try and beat it.

So, if you enjoy the film and want to buy me a coffee/beer (depending, of course, on the time of day) you can drop some e-change into the tip jar at theperfectcon.com and I'll be extremely grateful. And, if I beat FIFA's takings, well that'd just be hilarious...
