This was the week of Alan Sugar’s racist tweet and Melania Trump’s indifferent jacket.

Here’s five more things we discovered:

 

The World Cup is a lot weirder than you think…

If you ever thought the idea of a global kickabout couldn’t get any weirder, think again.

Last week we had World Cup moments as album covers. This week we have World Cup moments as beer mats.

20 designers came together to bring the competition’s weirdest moments to life. The moments that come up in nearly every pub convo. The moments that mainly involve ‘02 Ronaldo.

Here’s a few of our faves:

 

 

 

…and then it gets even weirder

Although it’s weeks until we find out which nation is the best at football, we have discovered which is the best at tidying – Japan!

 

After a clean 2-1 win to Colombia on Tuesday, the fans cleaned up the stadium of their rubbish. Maybe ‘Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up’ could help the country scoop the big win?

 

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s new video is ‘Apesh**t”

They finally did it. They’ve finally released that collab album, against all the odds. And the video for their lead single ‘Apeshit’ is really quite something.

We’re definitely experiencing another golden age of music videos right now.

 

 

‘Multilocalism’ is the next design trend, according to Adobe Stock

Time to add a new term to your buzzword box – ‘multilocalism’. Although it’s a silly word (almost as bad as ‘multipotentialites’ or, I dunno, ‘millennial’) it’s a pretty cool concept.

It’s basically the idea that ‘home’ is about feeling, rather than where your house is based. In other words people can feel at home in different places across the world. Here’s a groovy montage about it:

 

And finally…

Turns out you can eat someone out of house and home, which is what happened to an all-you-can-eat restaurant in China. As a promo, they offer its greedy hungry customers an unlimited monthly membership. You can guess what happened.
