English soccer fans, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL!

(click images, via) Future written. Nike put up this pre-World Cup sculpture, riffing off of Mount Rushmore, on Cromwell Road in London. Taking the place of U.S. presidents were Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Theo Walcott and James Milner. I would not be surprised if a few hooligans were—as I type this—already destroying the bloody fuck out it after England's 4-1 loss to Germany this morning. Here's the video of the making of the monument, which includes footage of non-factor Rooney getting his mug cast.

Anonymous OZYMANDIAS said...

Half sunk, the shattered visages lie, whose frowns
And wrinkled lips, and sneers of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

(with apologies to Percy Bysshe Shelley)
