Nike’s Latest World Cup Ad

Just when you thought Nike couldn’t possibly conjure up another riveting advert ahead of the looming World Cup, this five minute animated blockbuster arrives.

Imagining a world where a super villain (let’s call him Sepp Blatter) and his corrupt organisation (let’s call them FIFA) aim to strip football of its most colourful characters and replace them all with clones, we see the exaggerated frames of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimović and the like take on the new players in one final encounter.

Led by the chunkier, older Ronaldo, the figures put up quite the fight. And yes, Zlatan does speak in third person.
