The allegations of bribery, human rights abuses, and many other concerns related to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are piling up, so the famous Taiwanese animators at TomoNews have put together a handy video explaining the situation with the most insane yet perfect imagery possible.
The report, which features a narrator who sounds like the guy that sang "Chocolate Rain," includes everything from a samurai committing ritual suicide upon learning that Qatar had won hosting rights to Qatar officials handing out ice cream cones filled with cash to FIFA executives to UEFA president Michel Platini snorting gold coins off a toilet to zombie Uncle Sam, Paddington Bear and a kangaroo getting their revenge. It is pure madness.
Platini is alleged to have met with former top Qatari football official Mohamed Bin Hammam, who himself is alleged to have bought votes for Qatar's bid, before the decision was made in 2010. Platini voted for Qatar, but now says "there will need to be a new vote and sanctions" if corruption is proved.
The Australian football federation (which is not led by a zombie kangaroo) believes they may yet have a chance to host the 2022 World Cup given all of the controversy surrounding Qatar. However, the U.S. is reportedly the favored destination should an unprecedented move be made.
