We have chosen the best 7 just for your viewing pleasure:

Sure Men – predicting who will win each match at the 2010 World Cup is a difficult task, let alone which country will get their hands on the trophy, so to make it easier a last eight sweepstake has been created. Taking inspiration from the iconic Honda advert, here’s an incredible football sweepstake machine:

Mars – The 1990 England World Cup song World in Motion remains the best English football song to this day, largely in part to the amazing John Barnes rap. Here’s Barnes recreating his iconic rap and putting other England football songs to shame. Sing along to a decent football song for a change:


Freeview – Meet the Tiny Streaker! Every tournament is graced by the presence of a streaker somewhere along the way and here’s the smallest one in the world, who is looking forward to the 2010 World Cup as like the world’s best footballers its his chance to shine on the big stage. He has a magnificent beard too:

The Sun – The 02 in London is used to some amazing singers and pop stars. The great and the good of the modern music scene have performed there and now there’s someone else to add to the list. Former England manager Terry Venables, but he went one better and performed on the roof:

Ringtagz – Fed up of having the same old boring ringtone on your mobile? Why not make your caller’s day and get a ringtone that celebrates the World Cup instead? In this strange video, here are some puppet socks showing how you and your mates can get behind England this summer:

Burger King – One of the hottest tickets in the world is for the 2010 World Cup final on the 11th of July in South Africa, but the next best thing is getting to watch the game on the big screen with an England legend. Enter the one and only Jimmy Greaves and a burger:

Adidas – The 2010 World Cup will show just how far football has progressed in recent years. Players such as Lionel Messi and David Villa are taking the game to a new level, in part thanks to the help of some ridiculously light football boots. Look out for France legend Zinedine Zidane in this video:

Some hilarious 2010 World Cup viral videos I’m sure you’ll agree. I’m not sure about Venables’ singing, probably best to keep that to himself in the shower, but the Tiny Streaker and his incredible beard put on a good show, whilst the sweepstake machine football video is awesome, especially considering as they shot it in one take! What’s your favourite?
