Reddit user makes a righteous GIF of every World Cup soccer ball since 1930

Ever wonder how this year’s World Cup ball compares to, say, 1974? One Reddit user has created a GIF of every World Cup ball since 1930, and it’s mesmerizing. Well, until the end of the loop when the 2014 ball shows up on a grassy background and hinders the flow… But how about that ball with the laces? Maybe we’ll have to start calling soccer football after all. (GIF via Reddit)
