There's nothing more beautiful than sport -- especially not asÂ Joseph Kahn,Â directs it, in this wonderful, promo for the soon-to-be-launched Fox Sports 1.
The spot features rough-and-tumble shots of football players barrelling into each other, basketballers doing insane jumps, and cars clipping each other, all in ultra slow motion, set to a breathy, whispery cover of "Happy Days Are Here Again." There's also a tempo change in the middle, which turns the moves from calm and lovely to strong and inspiring.
Featured in the promo are celebrities including Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens, UFC champ Georges St. Pierre, St. John's coach Steve Lavin and boxer Mike Tyson.Â
The network launchesÂ Aug. 17.
