If you are not a fan of the round ball game, forgive me if I start to get a bit hysterical about the upcoming World Cup. This blog is gonna get a dose of football fever in the next month or so. So get on board or ignore.
While I don't normally think that ads for multinational megacorporations need any extra publicity, I have to say this new Nike ad is pretty damn cool. It toys with the idea of how history is made by those brief moments of brilliance on the big stage.
The players featured here are Didier Drogba (Ivory Coast), Fabio Cannavaro (Italy), Wayne Rooney (England), Franck Ribery (France), Kaka and Ronaldinho (Brazil) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal). Unfortunately the ad's makers didn't reckon with Ronaldinho being shockingly left out of the Brazil squad.
