Thór Halldórsson is an accomplished goalkeeper, I mean, not every goalkeeper gets to deny Messi from a penalty shot. But, when goalkeeper Thór Halldórsson is not keeping the goal, he is working as a film director.
In fact, one of the latest Coca-Cola commercials, the Icelandic Coca-Cola ad for the World Cup 2018, was directed by Halldórsson and it’s pretty awesome. It’s quite a clever commercial, making use of the Icelandic team SKOL cheer. (hit the just to see what it is).
Apparently, when Halldórsson football career was stumbling, he took on film directing in parallel to his football career.
If you want to see your favorite goalkeeper on set, just watch this BTS:
And as promised, the SKOL cheer. It’s kind of a mashup between “We will rock you” by Queen, and “The Cup Song” by Anna Kendrick.
With this, I hope that DIYP has paid its tribute to the World Cup, and we can get back to photography ;)
