Featuring the likes of Christiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar da Silva Santos Jr, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (pronounce that drunk), Nike uses the lengthy commercial to promote its new football gear, such as the 2014 England shirts, which have already caused outrage this year with a hefty price tag of £90. Yup, you read that right. £90 for one shirt.
Most of the way through the video, however, who else appears but none other than the Hulk, as portrayed by Mark Ruffalo in The Avengers! Not being a football fan myself, it's the best part of the whole thing, except for the guy taking a ball to the face at high velocity. Comedic suffering always gets my vote.
At least now England fans know where their hard-earned money has gone so far. What dedicated fan would begrudge themselves a shirt over a week's wages? Only I'm guessing that, if England doesn't do so well this year, fans will be expecting not just the Hulk, but Cap, Iron Man, and the rest to avenge their wallets.
Sound off, Fanboys! What did you think? Is Nike shamelessly capitalizing here, or maybe it's a matter of ego? Comments below and thanks for reading.
