Video of the Week: Rowing Parody of 1998 World Cup Credits

This week's video comes to us from photographer (and RR contributor) Iain Weir, showcasing some of the most fantastic 'race faces,' the roughest conditions, the most miserable mishaps, and devastating crabs ever caught on film. The images are paired with a dramatic reading of Rudyard Kipling's If, and the end result is, well, brilliant. The video asks the question, How do you respond to adversity? And, coupled with the poem, it delivers the answer: Hold on.
