The World Cup begins and Shakira's song captures it wonderfully!

Shakira - Waka Waka | Official Video | World Cup South Africa 2010

I love this happy music video - the African dancing, the clips of players (did she have problems getting rights? because I know how difficult it can be). The song is catchy, even if you don't really know what you're singing.

From all the clips I have seen on the news it just seems like South Africa are just really happy to have the World Cup and mean to welcome the world with open arms. Their team aren't amazing but who cares! It's all about optimism and fun. They have the right attitude and the English fans could really learn from them.

And the lovely innocence of the kids out there is just gorgeous. A head girl of a little school interviewed on the news said that she was looking forward to meeting Victoria Beckham. Victoria, please make it happen!

Oh and here's what my friend Antoine sent me afterwards - apparently it's the original!
