Nike Football: The Last Game

Ok so I know it’s only been a day since I last mentioned the World Cup but it does only come round every four years so cut me some slack.  It’s worth it.

Wieden + Kennedy have teamed up with Nike again and created a superb new animation as part of their #RiskEverything campaign.

I love the exaggerated caricature-esque figures of the footballers, but the inclusion of Ronaldo (the Brazilian R9) is a touch of brilliance.

If you didn’t recognise any of the characters they are Ronaldo Fenomeno, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar Júnior, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andrés Iniesta, David Luiz, Franck Ribéry, and Tim Howard.

There’s no greater danger than playing it safe.

    I think the song “Oh Desculpe” from the album Manaus Where Two Rivers Meet, would have gone nicely with that animation.
