Well Football fans, they’ve done it again, Nike have released yet another of their legendary adverts, this time inviting the viewers to ‘Dare to be Brasilian’ and follow the national team ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
The latest advert which shows a game through the eyes of Samba stars such as Thiago Silva and Neymar flicks between life on the pitch and alternate surroundings such as the streets of Rio de Janerio and Copacabana Beach treats us to some of the skills which rightly make Brazil favourite for the World Cup.
Under the watchful gaze of national team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari and Brazil legend Ronaldo, the players dance around the opposition before scoring, making football look easy, just as they always do.
For me its right up there with the famous airport advert from 1998, if you don’t believe me then take a look.
