Andy Murray’s historic win at Wimbledon, as told with LEGOs (video)


Obviously, Andy Murray’s defeat of Novak Djokovic to secure the 2013 Wimbledon men’s title was a monumental and historic moment in tennis history. Being the first British man in 77 years to win the men’s singles title at the grandest tennis tournament in all the land, a tournament that just so happens to be played in their backyard (as it were), delivered a tremendous swelling of nationalistic pride — not to mention a sigh of relief decades in the waiting — for the country and its citizens.

So what better way to document such a significant historical event than through the use of LEGOs, which everyone knows is the favorite toy of all British children, save for perhaps Lincoln Logs, G.I. Joe action figures and Tonka trucks.

Wait, that can’t be right.

Either way, LEGOs are beloved worldwide, so why not use them to illustrate Murray’s magnificent win via stop motion animation? Why not, indeed.

Via The Guardian:

Murray’s epic gaffe of forgetting to hug his mum after the win was even included. I’m sure he appreciates that.
