Last night’s World Cup semi-final tussle between Germany and Brazil, the samba merchants being hammered on home soil 7-1, was a sporting massacre of the cruelest kind.
In fact, for the millions watching from the gaps between their fingers, juddering every time another goal flew in, it may have felt like watching Hulk Hogan smashing a steel chair into an already lifeless Rowdy Roddy Piper from back in the day.
Why the wrestling analogy? Some geniuses have created the best comedy video of the performance yet, splicing commentary from legendary WWE broadcaster Jim Ross with clips of all eight of the goals. And it fits superbly.
Not that we were in any doubt Brazil were down for the count.
