Leading up to tonight's World Cup Draw, Nike Netherlands and W+K Amsterdam sent out a group of football fans to create a draw schedule on the asphalt of Amsterdam's Dam Square out of nothing but 6000 meters of white and orange tape. The orange path demarcates the much hoped for path to glory for the Dutch, and culminates with the word "Bezet," which means "Taken," in the winning slot. The stunt takes inspiration from Dutch Queens Day celebrations, in which people stake their claim on street market spaces with tape the night before and mark their territory with the word "Bezet."
