I think that its a lovely piece of film that perfectly captures the spirit of messing around on the beach. Except that this time the (big) kids messing around with the rugby ball just happen to play for England. The reactions of the folks on the beach who had no idea that this was going to happen is lovely. Thom talks over on his blog about fake-ness in advertising that proports to be real (the example that he cites is T Mobile) I can tell you that none of this was faked in any way.
