Mexico, despite losing to 3-0 to Sweden, has advanced to the next round of the World Cup, thanks to South Korea’s shocking defeat of Germany.

And, in what was a beautiful display of trans-national comraderie during these tense and fractious times, Mexico fans took to celebrating with South Korea fans. Including, in one case, the South Korean consul to Mexico, and folks, my man was living.

And all across the globe, fans of Mexico and South Korea were joining together in international harmony.

Even the brands got in on the action.

It’s nice to see the World Cup bringing people together.
