'I'm Ricky. I live in Bristol.

0:00:020:00:05

'I work as an animator, which is lucky, because I love art.'

0:00:050:00:09

Goal!

0:00:090:00:11

'I live for art. I even dream of art.

0:00:110:00:13

'I draw... I paint...

0:00:130:00:16

'I make things!' Nailed it!

0:00:160:00:17

'I hang out with my mates -

0:00:200:00:21

-'Gavin, Michelle, Rich...'

-Yeah!

0:00:210:00:24

-'..and Sarah.'

-It's me!

0:00:240:00:26

'Most importantly, I make ninja moves.

0:00:260:00:28

'Some people call me the...'

0:00:280:00:30

'Today, I'll show you how to have table top fun with a tiny team.'

0:00:340:00:37

Goal!

0:00:390:00:40

'We'll be going dotty with the help of some bubble wrap.'

0:00:400:00:43

-Yay!

-'And the crowd goes wild when they see this trophy-winning art.

0:00:430:00:47

'Because today, it's...'

0:00:480:00:49

It's a new day.

0:00:570:00:59

I'd better get my ninja on.

0:00:590:01:01

And my clothes.

0:01:010:01:03

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:01:170:01:19

-Hi, Dad.

-Hi, Ricky.

-What are you doing?

0:01:190:01:22

Your mum's entered us in the Family World Cup.

0:01:220:01:24

It's a competition to find the best footballing family in the country.

0:01:240:01:28

It's tomorrow, and we're going to win!

0:01:280:01:30

We? Don't you remember?

0:01:300:01:32

I'm terrible at football!

0:01:320:01:34

# Here we go, here we go, here we go... #

0:01:350:01:37

SMASH!

0:01:370:01:39

Oi! That's my greenhouse!

0:01:390:01:41

And if we win the Family World Cup, we get to party with Jamie Vardy.

0:01:430:01:47

He's the host, and if we do win, we win £1,000.

0:01:470:01:51

Now you're talking! I'll get my boots!

0:01:510:01:53

On me head, Dad!

0:01:530:01:54

SMASH!

0:01:540:01:56

It's four-a-side, so bring your football-playing girlfriend.

0:01:560:01:59

What football-playing girlfriend?

0:01:590:02:00

The one you told Mum about.

0:02:000:02:02

Oh. That girlfriend.

0:02:020:02:05

Well, I guess I need to find a football-playing girlfriend.

0:02:070:02:10

And a ball to practise with.

0:02:100:02:12

Practise, practise, practise.

0:02:130:02:15

But how am I going to practise football in here

0:02:150:02:17

without wrecking the place? I know!

0:02:170:02:20

I'm going to make the Art Ninja flick ball game.

0:02:200:02:23

Got an old pizza box here.

0:02:240:02:26

And it's going to become my pitch.

0:02:260:02:28

You need some grass on it.

0:02:280:02:29

So I'm going to squeeze out some light green.

0:02:290:02:32

And a little bit of dark green.

0:02:320:02:33

And I'm going to paint it onto the cardboard using a sponge.

0:02:330:02:37

The sponge is giving the cardboard a lovely grassy texture.

0:02:410:02:45

Add a little bit of dark green in as well.

0:02:450:02:48

This just makes it look more realistic.

0:02:480:02:50

I need for that to dry, but I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:02:540:02:57

There we go. Lovely and dry.

0:02:590:03:01

And the back edges are red.

0:03:010:03:03

And they're going to be my barriers.

0:03:030:03:05

Now I need to mark out the pitch.

0:03:050:03:07

Start with the halfway line.

0:03:070:03:10

And the goal line.

0:03:100:03:12

Goal area.

0:03:130:03:15

I'm just doing the area the other end.

0:03:150:03:18

The centre circle.

0:03:180:03:19

A little semicircle on the top of here.

0:03:200:03:22

Does anyone know what these are for?

0:03:220:03:24

I don't. I'm going to fold up my barriers.

0:03:240:03:26

And these barriers, I'm going to decorate with some banners

0:03:270:03:30

made out of old wrapping paper.

0:03:300:03:32

Stick them on to the edges with a glue stick.

0:03:320:03:34

Don't have to use wrapping paper.

0:03:340:03:36

You could use stickers, or packets, anything you like.

0:03:360:03:39

I'm using wrapping paper to hold the corners in place here.

0:03:400:03:43

Finished all my banners.

0:03:470:03:49

Now I need to make some goals.

0:03:490:03:51

So I've cut some strips of card here,

0:03:510:03:53

and I'm sticking them together with double-sided sticky tape.

0:03:530:03:56

The long ones are going to be the goalposts,

0:03:560:03:58

and the short one, the crossbar.

0:03:580:03:59

I've got a nifty little idea for the net.

0:03:590:04:02

To recycle an old fruit bag.

0:04:020:04:04

And stick it down with some sticky tape.

0:04:040:04:06

Trim it down with a pair of scissors.

0:04:060:04:08

Lovely. Now I need to fold this to turn it into my goal,

0:04:100:04:14

and then at the bottom make two little tabs that I can stick

0:04:140:04:17

to the pitch.

0:04:170:04:19

With a little bit of double-sided sticky tape,

0:04:190:04:21

I'm sticking down these two tabs just behind the goal line.

0:04:210:04:25

But football's a game of two halves, so I'm going to need another goal.

0:04:250:04:27

Ninja skills.

0:04:290:04:31

Now I've got the pitch, I need to make the players.

0:04:310:04:33

So I've got a couple of pieces of card here and a paperclip.

0:04:330:04:36

And I'm just going to put some strips of double-sided sticky tape

0:04:360:04:39

on the inside of this cardboard,

0:04:390:04:41

and then lay down my paperclip like that.

0:04:410:04:44

And then sandwich it between the two pieces of cardboard.

0:04:440:04:46

With a pen, I'm going to draw my player's body.

0:04:460:04:49

A red ninja shirt.

0:04:550:04:57

Some dark shorts.

0:04:590:05:00

I've cut out a picture of my face to stick on the top,

0:05:020:05:05

but you can personalise your players however you like.

0:05:050:05:09

Now for the base, I'm using an old bottle top,

0:05:090:05:12

and I'm going to weight it with some modelling clay.

0:05:120:05:14

Just going to push it in. And now, finally,

0:05:140:05:17

I can push the paperclip at the bottom of my player into the clay.

0:05:170:05:20

To play a game, I'm going to need some new signings.

0:05:200:05:23

So I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:05:230:05:25

So, now I've got a whole squad.

0:05:270:05:29

Including my mystery football-playing girlfriend.

0:05:300:05:34

And I've used another bottle top to make the football,

0:05:340:05:36

but I've kept it empty.

0:05:360:05:38

Time for kick-off!

0:05:380:05:40

So, Michelle, you're in goal.

0:05:400:05:41

Ricky steps up to the ball.

0:05:410:05:43

There's a lot riding on this.

0:05:430:05:45

He shoots. Goal!

0:05:450:05:47

And the great thing about this game is when you reach full-time,

0:05:480:05:51

you can tidy it away.

0:05:510:05:53

But you don't have to make one like mine.

0:05:530:05:56

You can make some footballing kittens.

0:05:560:05:59

And these guys are playing with a ball of wool.

0:05:590:06:02

If football's not your game, how about a game of pool?

0:06:020:06:05

That's my cue to leave.

0:06:070:06:08

Right, time to get a ball.

0:06:080:06:11

This will all be worth it if we can win a grand.

0:06:110:06:13

Just imagine, £1,000.

0:06:130:06:17

£1,000.

0:06:170:06:19

Wow!

0:06:190:06:21

Let's do delivery. Super extreme fast delivery?

0:06:210:06:25

Yeah.

0:06:250:06:27

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:06:270:06:28

Wow. That is super extreme fast delivery!

0:06:280:06:30

-Oh, hi, Sarah.

-Hi, Ricky.

0:06:340:06:35

My amateur dramatics club got cancelled,

0:06:350:06:37

so I just thought I'd pop by.

0:06:370:06:39

Oh, what play are you doing?

0:06:390:06:40

Hamlet - I'm Ophelia!

0:06:400:06:42

Well, how do you OPHELIA about

0:06:420:06:44

-acting as my girlfriend in the Family World Cup?

-Oh, um...

0:06:440:06:48

Yeah, sorry, Ricky. I'm off football.

0:06:480:06:50

A terrible verruca.

0:06:500:06:52

Oh, is that the time? Um, I've got somewhere really important to be.

0:06:530:06:56

Or not to be! Bye!

0:06:560:06:58

Verruca, my foot!

0:07:000:07:01

A likely story.

0:07:010:07:03

Here's something that's very unlikely.

0:07:030:07:05

That's because it's animated.

0:07:050:07:08

Today for the animation, I've got a really, really big idea.

0:07:080:07:11

Rich, no!

0:07:140:07:16

SQUELCH!

0:07:160:07:17

GROANING

0:07:170:07:19

That was close!

0:07:190:07:20

-Don't worry, mate.

-It's just an animation.

0:07:210:07:23

And it's all a matter of perspective.

0:07:230:07:26

So, to make this animation, you'll need...

0:07:260:07:28

A large open space... some friends...

0:07:280:07:31

and a tablet or smartphone with an animation app.

0:07:310:07:34

And you can put it together in just three ninja moves.

0:07:340:07:37

Ninja move number one.

0:07:370:07:38

You want somebody to be big in frame, and somebody to be small.

0:07:380:07:42

So, they need to be different distances away from the tablet.

0:07:420:07:44

Do a couple of experiments to get the distance just right.

0:07:440:07:47

And top tip, keep the tablet as low to the floor as possible.

0:07:470:07:51

Ninja move number two.

0:07:510:07:52

It's time to start shooting.

0:07:520:07:54

Now, the person behind the camera has a really important role,

0:07:540:07:57

because they have to direct both actors, and one is miles away.

0:07:570:08:00

And the trick here is to make it look like the two are interacting.

0:08:000:08:03

Ninja move number three.

0:08:090:08:11

Oh, well, there is no ninja move number three.

0:08:110:08:14

We finished that animation ages ago!

0:08:140:08:16

Let's play it.

0:08:180:08:20

Rich, no!

0:08:200:08:21

SQUELCH!

0:08:210:08:22

GROANING

0:08:220:08:24

-What do you think, Rich?

-Gnarly to the max!

0:08:240:08:27

What do you think, Ella?

0:08:280:08:29

All this waiting around is sending me dotty.

0:08:370:08:40

Hello, I am Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

0:08:400:08:45

Why don't you take your mind off it doing some dotty art?

0:08:450:08:49

Great plan! I'm going to paint a picture of hundreds of dots

0:08:490:08:54

using some bubble wrap.

0:08:540:08:56

I'm famous for lots of different types of art

0:08:560:08:59

with one thing in common - dots.

0:08:590:09:02

Why dots?

0:09:020:09:03

The dots are a symbol of the world, the cosmos.

0:09:030:09:07

The Earth is a dot.

0:09:070:09:09

You and me are dots.

0:09:090:09:11

-Sayonara.

-Oh, bye!

0:09:120:09:15

I'm going to start by squeezing out some of this paint and painting it

0:09:160:09:20

onto the bubbly side of the bubble wrap.

0:09:200:09:22

I need to get a good coverage quite quickly,

0:09:230:09:25

because I don't want the paint to dry.

0:09:250:09:27

And this means I get a much cleaner spotty print.

0:09:270:09:30

If you're doing this at home, put paper down,

0:09:320:09:35

because it can get quite messy.

0:09:350:09:36

Great, that's a good coverage.

0:09:380:09:39

Now I'm going to put my paper over the top and get a print

0:09:390:09:42

of all the dots.

0:09:420:09:43

I'm going to press it down everywhere

0:09:430:09:45

to make sure I get a nice, even print.

0:09:450:09:48

Check that out!

0:09:500:09:52

That's brilliant.

0:09:520:09:54

If I'm going to make a really cool picture,

0:09:540:09:56

I need lots of coloured dots

0:09:560:09:57

on lots of different pieces of coloured paper.

0:09:570:09:59

So I'll just ninja some more.

0:09:590:10:01

There we go.

0:10:010:10:03

My picture's going to be made up of lots of layers,

0:10:030:10:05

so for that, I'm going to need a template.

0:10:050:10:07

So we draw one out on here.

0:10:070:10:10

I'm going to be drawing a football boot,

0:10:100:10:12

but you can draw anything you like.

0:10:120:10:13

Just drawing the back of the heel.

0:10:130:10:15

And then the underside of the sole.

0:10:150:10:18

And these lumpy bits here, these are the studs of my football boots.

0:10:190:10:23

And the tongue. I'm simplifying a lot of the shapes,

0:10:240:10:28

so it just makes my template easier to cut out.

0:10:280:10:31

I'm going to add some stripes to my boots.

0:10:310:10:33

And to draw a nice, straight line, I'm going to use a ruler.

0:10:330:10:37

Right. Now I'm going to cut that out.

0:10:370:10:39

For the first part of my picture, I'm going to use the whole template.

0:10:390:10:43

And then after that, I'm going

0:10:430:10:44

to cut it down into the separate shapes.

0:10:440:10:46

Now I'm going to draw around my template on this lovely green

0:10:470:10:50

and yellow spotty paper I made.

0:10:500:10:52

If you're worried about your pen or pencil slipping,

0:10:540:10:57

either tack the template to the dotted paper,

0:10:570:11:00

or you can draw it on the back, then it doesn't matter at all.

0:11:000:11:03

There we are. Now I'm going to cut my template into separate segments,

0:11:080:11:12

and draw around them on the different coloured dotty papers.

0:11:120:11:14

Those two bits are going to go onto the blue and red piece of paper.

0:11:190:11:23

This one, I'm going to have

0:11:230:11:24

the inside of the boot and the back of the heel.

0:11:240:11:26

And on this one, the stripes.

0:11:260:11:28

Now I'm going to draw around the parts that I cut out.

0:11:280:11:31

There we go.

0:11:350:11:36

Now I need to cut all of these out.

0:11:360:11:38

And I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:11:380:11:39

Check it out!

0:11:410:11:42

I'm going to start assembling them on this lovely piece of

0:11:420:11:45

blue and white spotty card.

0:11:450:11:47

I'm just gluing these down with a glue stick.

0:11:470:11:49

I'm going to put on the studs now.

0:11:530:11:55

That's a lovely bit of colour contrast there, isn't it?

0:11:550:11:57

The red and green. The good thing about using the glue stick

0:11:570:12:01

is that when you push it down,

0:12:010:12:02

you can slide it until the positioning is just perfect.

0:12:020:12:04

The tongue's on. And now just the laces.

0:12:070:12:09

There we go. A picture made entirely of coloured dots.

0:12:150:12:18

And I think it's so good, it deserves a frame.

0:12:180:12:21

Check it out!

0:12:210:12:23

No football delivery yet.

0:12:330:12:35

Better get on with finding myself a football-playing girlfriend.

0:12:350:12:37

I wonder if Michelle will do it?

0:12:370:12:39

-No.

-But I haven't even asked you anything yet!

0:12:400:12:43

Last time I ended up doing you a favour, I ended up totally messy.

0:12:430:12:47

PHONE BEEPS Michelle? Michelle?

0:12:470:12:49

She's gone.

Wait here, Gav. Or should I say, Gavina?

0:13:560:14:00

Hi, guys. What can I help you with?

0:14:030:14:05

'Please can you make art from bottle tops?'

0:14:050:14:08

You'll need to keep a lid on your excitement, I'm afraid.

0:14:080:14:11

Because we're not doing that today.

0:14:110:14:13

Aw!

0:14:130:14:14

'Ricky, Ricky, Ricky!'

0:14:150:14:16

It's Ben Shires from Match Of The Day Kickabout!

0:14:160:14:19

'I was wondering if you could make something out of this scarf?'

0:14:190:14:22

Um... No.

0:14:230:14:25

It's a bit of a woolly idea.

0:14:250:14:26

'Yeah.'

0:14:260:14:28

Hey. What have these guys got?

0:14:280:14:30

'Ricky, can you make art with an old cardboard tube?'

0:14:300:14:34

Sure I can. I choose you.

0:14:340:14:36

'Yay!'

0:14:360:14:37

So, what are your names?

0:14:370:14:39

-'I'm Molly.

-And I'm Lily May.'

0:14:390:14:41

Lovely to meet you, guys. Just go and grab some stuff.

0:14:410:14:44

I've got a little plate of glue.

0:14:440:14:46

Gold and yellow paint.

0:14:460:14:48

Got some red paper.

0:14:480:14:49

And my trusty cardboard tube.

0:14:490:14:51

So I'm going to start by painting my tube yellow,

0:14:510:14:54

and I'm going to do the inside first.

0:14:540:14:55

Because that's just a bit easier to hold on to it.

0:14:550:14:59

I've been entered into a football competition.

0:14:590:15:01

-Do you guys like sports?

-'I like gymnastics.

0:15:010:15:04

'I like basketball more.'

0:15:040:15:06

What I'm making now has something to do with the competition.

0:15:060:15:08

-What do you think it could be?

-'A medal?'

0:15:080:15:11

Could be something along those lines.

0:15:110:15:13

'Trophy?'

0:15:130:15:14

Ah, yes. It's a trophy, but unlike any you've seen before.

0:15:140:15:18

OK, now I need that tube to dry.

0:15:180:15:20

I'm going to give it a quick ninja blow.

0:15:200:15:23

There we go. So,

0:15:230:15:24

I'm going to cut my cardboard tube into one-centimetre strips.

0:15:240:15:28

So, now I've cut all my little rings cut,

0:15:280:15:30

I'm going to start shaping them.

0:15:300:15:31

The first one's easy.

0:15:310:15:33

That's a leaf shape. Second one's pretty easy as well.

0:15:330:15:35

I'm just going to roll it in on itself and create a nice spiral.

0:15:350:15:39

I'm going to create a V.

0:15:390:15:41

Pretty simple. This one's going to be like a three-point star.

0:15:410:15:44

And I'm going to hold that together with a little bit of glue.

0:15:440:15:47

The final shape I'm going to need,

0:15:470:15:49

I'm going to cut one of the rings open and I'm going to roll it down

0:15:490:15:51

one way on one side, half the way.

0:15:510:15:53

And I'm going to turn it over and roll the other side

0:15:530:15:57

the opposite way.

0:15:570:15:58

Just experiment with your shapes.

0:15:580:16:00

Now, I'm going to need lots of these to make my picture.

0:16:000:16:03

So, I'm going to use my ninja skills.

0:16:030:16:06

'Wow!'

0:16:060:16:09

So with all these shapes,

0:16:090:16:10

I'm going to start putting together my picture.

0:16:100:16:12

I'm just going to lay out the main leaf shapes.

0:16:120:16:15

And now, I'm just going to dip the ends of them in some PVA glue.

0:16:150:16:18

You don't need much glue,

0:16:190:16:20

because it is only a thin side which it sticks to.

0:16:200:16:23

Now I'm using the different shapes I've made to make different parts of

0:16:240:16:27

my picture. And they're all good for building up the image.

0:16:270:16:30

Now I'm going to put in my little heart shapes.

0:16:300:16:32

There you go.

0:16:320:16:34

If you guys had to play a family football match,

0:16:340:16:36

-what positions would you play?

-'Goalie.

-Goalie.'

0:16:360:16:38

-Both goalies?

-'Yeah.'

0:16:380:16:40

Once you've filled up the main space,

0:16:410:16:43

you can really get going nice and quick on this.

0:16:430:16:45

This technique is called quilling.

0:16:450:16:47

Got my little S shapes.

0:16:470:16:49

These are going to be confetti,

0:16:490:16:50

because, of course, you're celebrating if you've got a trophy.

0:16:500:16:53

So, I've got some gold paint here.

0:16:530:16:54

And I'm just going to dip the end of my brush in it and dust the tops of

0:16:540:16:57

the shapes to give it a lovely, metallic shine.

0:16:570:17:00

OK, guys.

0:17:000:17:02

What do you think of this?

0:17:020:17:04

'Whoa!'

0:17:050:17:07

What would you score it out of ten?

0:17:070:17:09

-'Ten!'

-Oh, yes!

0:17:090:17:11

I think it's so good, it deserves a frame.

0:17:110:17:13

Thank you so much for your suggestion, guys.

0:17:130:17:15

You've been brilliant! Bye-bye!

0:17:150:17:17

'Bye!'

0:17:170:17:18

That's strange. He normally falls over.

0:17:240:17:27

Om.

0:17:270:17:29

HE COUGHS

0:17:290:17:30

Om...

0:17:300:17:31

CRASH!

0:17:310:17:32

I'm OK, man! Greetings, dude!

0:17:320:17:36

Greetings, Grandmaster.

0:17:360:17:39

You are amazing in so many ways.

0:17:390:17:41

Shh!

0:17:410:17:42

Lesson number 442 to enlightenment.

0:17:420:17:47

Applause maker for entertainment spectacle!

0:17:470:17:51

-Hand clapper.

-Yeah!

0:17:520:17:55

Let's go!

0:17:550:17:57

Glue the lolly sticks together.

0:17:580:18:01

You're going to need strong glue, dude!

0:18:010:18:05

You need to glue buttons to both sides of your sticks.

0:18:090:18:14

Take a fruit punnet and cut out rectangles.

0:18:180:18:23

Careful, dude!

0:18:230:18:25

Plastics can be sharp.

0:18:250:18:26

Trim off the edges.

0:18:280:18:30

So edgy!

0:18:310:18:33

Glue on more buttons, this time to the plastic.

0:18:340:18:38

Stick everything together, man.

0:18:420:18:44

Make sure the buttons line up!

0:18:450:18:49

Take photograph, dude!

0:18:590:19:02

Then, print it out.

0:19:020:19:04

Cut the photos of your hands out.

0:19:070:19:09

And stick them on.

0:19:110:19:14

All done!

0:19:230:19:24

Yeah!

0:19:250:19:27

Lesson number 442, complete!

0:19:320:19:35

Thanks, Grandmaster.

0:19:370:19:39

You are most welcome.

0:19:390:19:42

GONG

0:19:420:19:43

Om!

0:19:430:19:44

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:19:440:19:46

-It's my delivery!

-1,000 balls for the Art Ninja?

0:19:460:19:50

1,000 balls?

0:19:500:19:53

I didn't order 1,000 balls!

0:19:530:19:54

Oh, no. I did.

0:19:560:19:58

Sign here, please.

0:20:000:20:02

This is a disaster!

0:20:100:20:12

I've got 1,000 balls, Gav's my girlfriend,

0:20:120:20:15

and I'm still rubbish at football.

0:20:150:20:17

Mate! 1,000 footballs?

0:20:170:20:19

That's 1,000 times better than one football!

0:20:190:20:23

Let's train!

0:20:230:20:24

Right, keepy-uppies. One...

0:20:260:20:29

One!

0:20:300:20:31

You're the greatest! You're Ronaldo!

0:20:370:20:39

You're Neymar! You're James Milner!

0:20:390:20:41

You're ready!

0:20:450:20:47

Here's a quick art tip. How to draw a foot.

0:20:520:20:55

So I'm going to start with the big toe, going to draw a straight line,

0:20:550:20:58

and then a curve underneath it,

0:20:580:20:59

for, like, the bulb of it.

0:20:590:21:01

And now the other toes cascade down from this one.

0:21:010:21:03

So, one, two, three.

0:21:030:21:06

And then the little one, four.

0:21:060:21:07

The actual sole of the foot is an arc.

0:21:070:21:10

And then that connects onto the heel, another curve.

0:21:100:21:13

And it reaches up.

0:21:130:21:15

And the top of the foot, sort of a curved line.

0:21:150:21:20

And these things reach up to make the leg.

0:21:200:21:22

The ankle is a little curve here.

0:21:220:21:24

And now I'm going to add the toenails,

0:21:240:21:26

just on the top of the big toe there.

0:21:260:21:29

And then on the other ones here.

0:21:290:21:31

Little eye shapes on the top of the toes.

0:21:310:21:34

And then a few hairs.

0:21:340:21:37

There you go.

0:21:410:21:42

Another quick art tip.

0:21:440:21:45

-Hi, Ricky.

-Hi, Dad.

-Ready for the footy?

0:21:590:22:02

Oh, and who's this?

0:22:020:22:04

Oh, this is Gav...ina!

0:22:040:22:06

Delighted to meet you, Gavina.

0:22:060:22:08

You too, mate.

0:22:080:22:09

-HIGH-PITCHED:

-Oh, I mean, Ricky's dad!

0:22:090:22:12

So, Gavina's been training me up.

0:22:120:22:14

Watch this. On me head!

0:22:140:22:16

CLATTER!

0:22:180:22:19

Oh...

0:22:200:22:21

PHONE BEEPS

0:22:250:22:26

Yes! I mean, oh, no.

0:22:260:22:29

Shame. Family World Cup's been cancelled.

0:22:290:22:32

-Why?

-Jamie Vardy's been hurt.

0:22:320:22:34

By comments about his hair!

0:22:360:22:38

Oh, no. Mum will be really sad.

0:22:380:22:41

She loves Jamie Vardy.

0:22:410:22:43

And she never even got to meet Gavina.

0:22:430:22:45

I'd better go and tell her the bad news.

0:22:450:22:47

Anyway...what are we going to do about all of these balls?

0:22:500:22:53

I've got a pretty good idea.

0:22:530:22:55

Get Rich and Sarah to meet us at the stadium, and bring all these balls.

0:22:550:22:59

Wait, Ricky!

0:22:590:23:01

Wait!

0:23:010:23:02

Ninja skills!

0:23:120:23:14

OK, Gavina. You wait here.

0:23:140:23:15

Nice shorts!

0:23:170:23:18

Thanks, man. I mean, girl.

0:23:180:23:21

-Hey, Sarah.

-Hi.

-You all right, Rich?

0:23:240:23:26

-How did you know it was me?

-Because you've got pigeon toes, mate.

0:23:260:23:28

-I'm a robin!

-Who is this?

0:23:280:23:31

I'm Gav...ina!

0:23:310:23:33

I like her, she's a keeper!

0:23:330:23:36

Actually, I'm more of a midfielder, to be honest.

0:23:360:23:39

OK then, team. Let's make some sporty art.

0:23:390:23:42

But first, better get our ninja on.

0:23:420:23:44

Art Ninja!

0:23:500:23:52

Strike a sporty pose.

0:23:520:23:53

Art Ninja!

0:23:530:23:54

All right, guys. Gav, when did you get here?

0:23:580:24:01

Oh, just now.

0:24:010:24:02

Gavina had to go, so I came instead.

0:24:020:24:05

-OK.

-So you know what that means?

0:24:050:24:08

No-one wants to be your girlfriend?

0:24:080:24:09

No, it means you guys can help me make some art.

0:24:090:24:11

Come on!

0:24:110:24:12

Go, ninja! Go, ninja!

0:24:140:24:15

Art Ninja!

0:24:150:24:17

Hey, Rich, what's that over there?

0:24:170:24:19

Perfect. These will be great.

0:24:220:24:24

Go, Art Ninja! Go, Art Ninja! Go, Art Ninja!

0:24:240:24:28

Go, Art Ninja!

0:24:280:24:29

What now, Ricks?

0:24:350:24:37

We're going to use all this kit to make an awesome action picture.

0:24:370:24:40

All right, so we're going to use these big bits of plastic,

0:24:450:24:48

and make ourselves a big frame.

0:24:480:24:50

See if you can guess what it is.

0:24:500:24:52

Now we're going to take these plastic bits and crisscross them.

0:24:540:24:57

Gotcha.

0:24:570:24:58

-Hey, Gav.

-Yeah?

-Yeah, if you could lay those out upside down.

0:25:020:25:05

Yeah.

0:25:050:25:06

-How about that?

-Nice one.

0:25:120:25:13

There you go, Sarah. Got some red tops, Bristol City colours.

0:25:150:25:18

-From the changing rooms.

-Fab.

0:25:180:25:19

Start building a nice, big, red area over there

0:25:190:25:21

-with all those shirts.

-OK. Cool.

0:25:210:25:23

And can you give me a hand with these?

0:25:230:25:25

-Where do you want this, then?

-I want you to lay that down the long length

0:25:310:25:34

-just there.

-OK.

0:25:340:25:37

And we're going to use the black rope as a kind of outline.

0:25:370:25:39

-That's it, Sarah. Pour out those balls.

-OK.

0:25:450:25:48

That's it. And you're going to be making some very important circles.

0:25:480:25:51

OK.

0:25:510:25:53

-Sarah, there's a little bit more yellow here.

-Thank you.

0:25:560:25:59

And then a couple of bits here like that,

0:26:020:26:04

because it just breaks up the white and gives it a bit of texture.

0:26:040:26:07

Makes it look kind of dirty and gritty.

0:26:070:26:09

Right.

0:26:090:26:10

-That's the boot done.

-Nice.

0:26:120:26:13

This is going to be epic.

0:26:130:26:15

Only one thing's missing. Go on, Gav, in you go.

0:26:160:26:19

-Nice!

-Carefully.

0:26:190:26:21

That's it, lay down about there.

0:26:210:26:23

Now time for the finishing touch.

0:26:240:26:26

Right, reach out for it.

0:26:270:26:30

There we go, mate. And the crowd goes wild!

0:26:300:26:33

-Woohoo!

-Check it out.

0:26:330:26:35

I only wish there was a football commentator here

0:26:360:26:39

to mark the occasion.

0:26:390:26:41

-COMMENTATOR:

-Well, there you go. It's art worthy of the World Cup.

0:26:410:26:44

They've got to be pleased with that.

0:26:440:26:46

Job done. Victory dance?

0:26:480:26:50

Yeah.

0:26:500:26:51

OK. I think I've done my metatarsal.

0:26:560:26:59

Stretcher!

0:27:000:27:01

We may not have won £1,000, but we did put 1,000 balls to good use.

0:27:140:27:19

Today has taught me a valuable Art Ninja lesson.

0:27:190:27:22

Making art with footballs - better than winning the match.

0:27:220:27:26

Pretending you've got a girlfriend?

0:27:260:27:27

Now, that comes with a catch.

0:27:270:27:29

Gav's great at football, but not such a great girlfriend.

0:27:290:27:33

I'm glad I don't have to see Gavina again.

0:27:330:27:35

Who's got the best hair?

0:27:390:27:41

HE SCREAMS

0:27:410:27:43

Ricky's never been good at football, so is horrified to hear his dad has entered him and his 'make-believe' girlfriend into a family tournament. Ricky makes a 'Flickball game' and a dotty football boot inspired by artist Yayoi Kusama before persuading a reluctant Gavin to don a wig and pass as his sweetheart. But how will Ricky turn a thousand balls he's accidentally ordered online into some striking art on the pitch?
