Sony invited renowned football freestyler Dan Magness to the unveiling of the star of their latest advertising campaign, the BRAVIA-drome. As well as setting three Guinness World Records ™, Dan warmed up with an awesome display of flicks and tricks, which you can see for the first time right here.
Dan smashed all three records he attempted at the event. He performed 188 Football Rolls Across The Forehead, a record which had previously stood at 56, and spent three minutes and ten seconds Controlling A Football On The Back (breaking his own previous best of two and a half minutes). He also set a brand new record for Most Consecutive Football Touches With The Shoulders, bouncing the ball 251 times without breaking a sweat. You can watch the video of Dan smashing these records elsewhere on our channel.
I felt like I could just keep going and going, said Magness, the crowd were great and I wanted to put on a show for them that theyd remember for a long time. The BRAVIA-drome was a hard act to follow, but I really went all out and I am just glad Sony gave me the chance to be part of the whole event.
The BRAVIA-drome was designed to demonstrate the technology behind Sonys Motionflow 200Hz functionality, which eliminates all jerkiness and smoothes the images on screen as they happen. The football theme was chosen as watching a match is one of the best ways to fully appreciate Motionflow, allowing viewers to watch the flight of the ball as it crashes into the back of the net.
