As we prepare for the start of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil later this week, the folks at Nike soccer have taken things to the next level with a new five-minute animated ad that features some of the world’s top soccer stars.
The ad, titled “The Last Game,” features animated versions of international stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar Júnior, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andrés Iniesta, David Luiz, Franck Ribéry, Tim Howard and Ronaldo Fenomeno.
What is the animation all about?
‘The Last Game’ is a story about risky football versus safe football.
The scientist and the clones want to prove that riskless football is more effective.
Ronaldo Fenomeno and the original players disagree, and they are willing to risk everything to prove the scientist wrong. There is only one way to know who is right: the Last Game.
The video even includes a Neymar selfie for good measure.
Who comes out on top when the world stars take on the team of clones? There is only one way to find out.
We will say this, however.
If Cristiano Ronaldo can do this in Brazil, the men’s national team is really in trouble.
