British The Guardian published an animated video about the History of the Olympic Games: from spartan Ancient Greece Olympics to lavish London’s extravaganza. For some unexplained reason, I am not sure whether I like the video concept. Maybe because the noise I get is not of very quality. But the drawing by Leigh Pearce is just a-ma-zi-ng!

Our animation is a perfect potted history, should you need it, of the Olympic Games. From Ancient Greece’s nude athletes — mercifully free of corporate stooges — to the present day’s economy-bustingly expensive extravaganza of London 2012, it’s been a hell of a journey. A sobering reminder, perhaps, that we’re all in this together.
