The 29hours traveled to attend IFTD 2015 in Orlando already took its toll on both editors, Colin and I, but even more so the begrudging feeling on Friday 17 July as we both knew we were missing Colin’s son’s third birthday. Elliot is one of the, scratch that, the coolest kid I know. With more hair than he knows what to do with and a mischievous grin likened to that of ‘Dennis the Menace’ he has the uncanny knack to wiggle his way into even the coldest of hearts. We missed the ‘Big Guy’ on the day and to be honest tears would well up as we shot this little video – we pulled in some of the biggest names in the business to wish the little legend a big happy birthday.
Happy birthday dude! Uncle Piet missed you with his whole heart and don’t believe your dad for a second, those weren’t mysterious midges that flew into his eyes as he was speaking to you on the phone.
My birthday present to you is a short happy birthday movie with some of our favourite sport’s biggest legends wishing you a happy birthday all the way from Orlando!
