BBC'S OLYMPIC COVERAGE > NBC'S

When the Winter Olympics get underway, Warming Glow won’t have much coverage beyond the opening and closing ceremonies; all the stuff about medals or Bob Costas’s reindeer sweater or whatever will be handled over at With Leather. But I wanted to share this 40-second promo for BBC’s coverage of the Games (watch below). It’s got art that looks like a graphic novel, an operatic score, wolves chasing a guy on skis, and no fewer than five different winter sports, including a scene where a monster encased in ice is defeated by the explosive power of curling. Yup: curling. It’s like an artsy version of the kick-ass Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks entrance video.

Meanwhile, on NBC: “…the story of one valiant biathlon competitor who refused to quit — even when she had leukemia.” Ugh. It’s like sports for people who watch “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
