Viral Video of the Day: Nike Gets Animated for the World Cup
The 2014 World Cup kicks off in Brazil on Thursday, and to commemorate, Nike has released a five-minute animated short film starring some of soccer’s legends.
‘The Last Game’ depicts an international team of soccer all-stars—including American goalie Tim Howard, English striker Wayne Rooney and Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo—tapped to face-off against a league of soccer clones who, unlike our heroes who put their hearts into the game, ‘play like it’s a job.’
Reminiscent of a mashup between Pixar’s superhero hit The Incredibles and Bend It Like Beckham, this fun short will get you pumped up for the World Cup.
Thankfully, it’s no Space Jam.
