The guys over at KickTV have done a wonderful job depicting Thierry henry’s best moments in a New York Red Bulls jersey, it’s hard not to wax lyrical about the video above.
Henry now has 400 career goals, and the makers of this great short video wanted to depict his greatness in a unique way.
After taking simple ‘flipbook’ sketches of Henry in action for New York and intertwining with real video highlights and dubbing a rhythmic hip-hop track as the background music, you can just picture soccer fans across the Big Apple being entranced by Henry’s magic as they flick through his best moments whilst waltzing through Brooklyn, Manhattan or Queens.
Henry’s legendary status is celebrated by his exploits in MLS so far, and a few assorted moment of Arsenal greatest for good measure, as the 34-year-old French striker just one game away from leading the Red Bulls to their first-ever MLS Supporters’ Shield title in 2013.
