On FIFA and World Cup

Posted on June 11, 2014  in Blog Experiences

I am not an avid fan of football. But I support this wonderful sporting event so I am posting this cool video. So to have some World Cup and FIFA fever here at menardconnect.com here is Nike Football’s Winner Stay video courtesy of Youtube.

Winner Stays feature football greats Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Wayne Rooney, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eden Hazard, Gonzalo Higuain, Gerard Pique, Andrés Iniesta, Mario Götze, Thiago Silva, Thibaut Courtois, Tim Howard, David Luiz and others.

The video also features other Nike Stars outside the football realm (NBA and MMA) as Kobe Bryant, Jon Jones, Anderson Silva also appeared. And even Ronaldo’s GF IRL, Irina Shayk appeared in the video too, with Marvel’s Incredible Hulk making a goalie appearance too.

I believe this is one of the most expensive video advertisement ever created!!!

Grats Nike!

Will try to post some Football smash up with other favorite topics here soon.
