Narrated by Carlos Alberto Torres, one of the greatest player in modern soccer history, this black and white animation by UMBRO tells his adventure (or mis-adventure) on the day of July 13th 1977, when a blackout crippled New York City. Coincidentally, it was also the day Torres signed onto the fledgling New York Cosmos soccer team. Hear the former captain of the Brazilian National Team relive that strange summer day in an almost matter-of-fact fashion. Perhaps it was this affable attitude that helped him in winning the 1970 FIFA World Cup.
