Nike’s newest Brazil national team ad
If you’re a fan of Nike’s Brazil national team commercials, Christmas has come a few weeks early.
Nike released its newest ad tribute to the Selecao over the weekend, with the World Cup hosts just days away from finding out who will be in its group. This ad, titled, “Dare to be Brasilian.” Unlike past ones that include Neymar squaring off against Neymar and the 1998 World Cup team making a fool of TSA in an airport, this one features Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari and stars Neymar, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Bernard and Paulinho taking it to a faux Argentina opponent while having some creative cutaways and effects (see for yourself). And of course, there’s the obligatory cameo by Brazil icon Ronaldo.
