Did anyone else think that the World Cup opening ceremony was all just a little bit dull?
With the entire ceremony building up to the finale where would see Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull singing the official FIFA song ‘We Are One (Ole, Ole)’ it all just felt very underwhelming.
Instead all that we were faced with was their drowned out voices unable to be heard through the crowds and an unfortunately dressed Pitbull donning a pair of out-of-date white trousers.
Despite this, it looked like a different picture actually inside the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo where J-Lo looked visibly overwhelmed by the support and energy expressed by the Brazilian fans.
But before all this we had to endure an hour of displays that included dancing trees and children doing keep yuppies with footballs attached to string.
The commentators were no doubt our saviors throughout who thankfully had been briefed beforehand with the representations Brazil were trying to convey in the ceremony.
It ended up being a far cry away from the Brazilian Carnival that we were expecting, but surely this wasn't asking for much since the host country are undeniably the masters of this.
From start to finish Twitter found itself being flooded with tweets complaining of the widespread disappointment in the show.
It seems that in comparison with the Olympic opening ceremonies the World Cup ones always seem to fall a little short in impressing us. I mean, who could forget back in 1994 when Diana Ross missed a penalty ten yards away at the US opening ceremony.
So with the opening ceremony failing to dazzle us, let's hope England manage to do a better job.
