Nike Commercial 2014: The Last Game featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar , Rooney, Zlatan, Iniesta
Last week, headphone company Beats by Dre released a five-minute commercial featuring a star-studded cast of celebrities like Lebron, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne as well as a slew of international footballers who are gearing for the World Cup.
Now Nike has released its own five-minute opus, The Last Game, starring versions of Wayne Rooney, Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo, Brazilian striker Neymar Jnr, US goalkeeper Tim Howard and a host of other stars facing off against a team of evil football-playing clones, (all of whom are sporting bowl haircuts cuts for some reason).
If Beats by Dre’s ad was inspired by Beyoncé and Jay Z’s Run, then Nike’s is channelling Despicable Me.
The ad begins with a nefarious scientist unveiling cloned versions of the best players alive. The clones – unlike their human counterparts – take no risks which supposedly makes them better players.
