Although it’s not an official sponsor for the FIFA World Cup™, Nike continues to roll out lavish commercials for the tournament with production values that likely trump every “independent movie” from the 1990s combined. The latest ad from the Swoosh is a CGI mini movie featuring Ronaldo rounding up Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar and others to play an all-or-nothing soccer game against an army of clones — so basically Space Jam 2.
Kids are going to like it.
I’m happy enough Nike allows CGI Tim Howard to rub shoulders with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Also, LeBron James dunks at the end, for some reason.
