Nike Soccer ‘The Last Game’ ad will get you ready for the World Cup

If you’re not already excited for the World Cup, watching Nike Soccer’s new animated short ad will definitely do the trick.

And it will entertain you, too.

The five-minute short, titled “The Last Game,” features some of the world’s most famous soccer players — in animated form — taking on cloned soccer players in order to prove that playing risky soccer instead of safe soccer isn’t a less effective way to play the game.

Animated Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar Jr., Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andrés Iniesta, David Luiz, Franck Ribéry, Ronaldo Fenomeno and team USA’s Tim Howard take the pitch to prove the scientist, who created the cloned perfect players, wrong and risk everything in what could be their last game.

It’s awesome, and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

So give yourself a five-minute break and check it out below.
