The Olympics with a twist thanks to Carl Burgess – swifter, higher, stronger… older!

The 2012 London Olympics seem like an age ago, but this video directed by Carl Burgess brings all those memories of being glued to the TV flooding back. Just one small change – the young, strapping athletes have been replaced by five senior citizens dressed in Great Britain’s red, white and blue, equipped with shot-puts, relay batons and champagne. Shot in super slow-mo, with the addition of dramatic music and hilarious visuals, we witness their anticipation, disappointment and celebration. A heartwarming way to start your day.
