R3hab's 'Unstoppable' Provides Backing Track
May 27, 2014
What can't Idris Elba do? The actor is behind the camera for "Beats of the Beautiful Game," a new short film via Mr. Elba's new production company, Green Door Productions. A classic underdog tale, the spot, set in what appears to be the 1970s, is backed by DJ R3hab's "Unstoppable," featuring Eva Simons. It's the tale of a nerd-tastic young man with some pretty awesome soccer skills, who makes a somewhat surprising decision after wowing us with some slick moves with a basketball.
