Hyundai: 2010 FIFA World Cup Sponsorship, 1950

Think about it.
Mention "the shot heard 'round the World" to any American sports fan and they'll probably tell you about a heroic home run hit by Bobby Thomson in 1951. But ask anyone outside America, and they'll tell you it was the victory over England by an American team made up of mail carriers, a dishwasher, a meat packer, a funeral director and other weekend league players who found themselves taking on the reigning kings of soccer in the 1950 World Cup. The odds against them were 500-1. While others questioned their chances, the U.S. team answered with the most stunning upset in the history of the World Cup. They saw the challenge not as an obstacle, but the opportunity to get better. Because, in the end, that's how you get to be the best.
Proud partner of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.

This copy goes on and on and kinda gets lost in the middle before struggling over the finish line.......You have to 'think about it' a little too much.
