Making the official 2010 FIFA World Cup Match Ball (Jabulani)

This is an interesting video to watch that shows the making of the official 2010 World Cup match ball, the Jabulani. Hoping there is one of these under the tree this year!

Eleven different colors are used in the adidas “JABULANI,” the eleventh adidas World Cup ball. These 11 colors represent the 11 players in every team, the 11 official languages of South Africa and the 11 South African tribes that make the country one of the most ethnologically diverse countries on the African continent. The colorful design brings together the tremendous diversity of the country in harmonious unity. Four triangle-shaped design elements on a white background lend the ball a unique appearance in African spirit.
