Wait, how’d this get before Thursday Camp Talk? I swear this wasn’t here before.
Anyhoo, I love it and was wondering why y’all hadn’t linked it yet. <3 the Rooney part. I hear the Ronaldo statue crumbles if anyone gets near it.

Check out the unbranded Ivory Coast (PUMA) and France (adidas), whereas, Rooney in England (umbro owned by Nike) is shown. Interesting.

That was a sweet video. I just have to say, Ribery is entirely too ugly to put in commercials. Also, it may not have been a great idea to put Ronaldinho in the commercial… he’ll be watching the games from home like the rest of us.

That was really brilliant. For all the (mostly valid) criticism of Nike on many levels their marketing and filmmaking is just class.

I love this video. I am so fired up for this thing to kick off in 3 weeks. My fav clip had to be Cannavaro… Il Capitano!!!
Forza Azzurri! Dihno has got to be pissed.

FYI, Paolo Bandini has an interesting article about Nike’s WC adverts in today’s Guardian.
