Shots of the Week26th February 2016 // Gareth Breeze
I’m sure you’ve all been longing to find out, just who we are endorsing to win the Best Actor Oscar this weekend. To fully appreciate our answer, follow me on a trip into the 20th century.
Picture the scene. A hot summer’s afternoon at the height of ’94. Having just triumphed emphatically in the trials for the flagship event of the Sack Race, I was hotly tipped as the favourite. With potential to go and do great things for the sport, I was the talk of the playground. Fast forward one week and 90 gruelling seconds later, there I was, over the finish line, with grass in my teeth and the sight of David Bates celebrating jubilantly before me. He was the Sack Race champion at Sports Day, and for each year thereafter… until my last year at primary. Year 6... The tide turned, and my glory came... So that’s why, much to the relief and joy of him and his loved ones, we can confirm that we are placing our support in Leonardo DiCaprio.
You see, we appreciate the underdog. We root for those who try and try and try again. To all those who persist to win the crown of our Shots of the Week, tagging their photos with #peliphoto week after week to earn a Peli Memory Card Case, rest assured – your time will come.
