Back in July of last year, we learned the name of the ball to be used in the London 2012 Olympics was to be “The Albert,” and we mercilessly made fun of it since that’s a slang term for balls. You know, those balls. Little did we know adidas would throw in another wrinkle to go with the funny name. The Albert is pink.

Not that there’s anything wrong with pink, necessarily, you just don’t expect a ball to be…pink.
