People can’t wait for the Rugby World Cup final tomorrow and it’s causing an absolute frenzy. Boredom, anticipation and some editing skills always leads to Richie McCaw cast as Maximus Decimus Meridius.
His name is Richie McCaw, commander of the Southern Hemisphere, General of the All Blacks, loyal servant to the true emperor, Steve Hansen. Father to a murdered son, boyfriend to a Hockey player. And he will have his vengeance, in this life or the next.
Alright the murdered son bit just had to stay in or it didn’t work, just sort of ignore it if you can. And the Wallabies will take exception to the Southern Hemisphere comment too. The final cannot come soon enough. We’re really not sure what comes next after someone sticks the head of Richie McCaw on Maximus Decimus Meridius and Michael Hooper is cast as a Germanic tribesman.
But, we kind of loved it if we’re honest. Though watch out. A slew of dodgy photo-shopped videos could be about to hit all our newsfeeds if this thing takes off. For a much more normal and reserved Richie McCaw video, be sure to check out this montage that’ll leave you emotionally drained, here.
