Neymar gets featured on the new Nike video ad: “Winner Stays!”
With the 2014 FIFA World Cup coming up in less than 2 months from now, big brands like Nike are not ceasing any effortsÂ to promote their products and earn evenÂ more visibilityÂ through viral advertising videos. Their last campaign features a long and illustrious list of sports celebrities, including the likes of RealÂ Madrid‘s Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend Irina Shayk, as well as Neymar Jr, Gonzalo HiguaĂn, Kobe Bryant, AndreaÂ Pirlo, Wayne Rooney,Â Zlatan IbrahimoviÄ‡, Gerard PiquĂ©, Mario GĂ¶tze, Eden Hazard, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, AndrĂ©s Iniesta, Thibaut Courtois, and Tim Howard. The video is called “Winner stays – Risk Everything“.
One of the fighting scenes at the end even includesÂ Anderson Silva (“The Spider“), the very popular MMA and UFC fighter. The Brazilian fighter holds theÂ longest title defense streak in UFC history, with 16 consecutive wins and 10 titles defenses.
Barcelona is basically representedÂ in this video by Neymar Iniesta and Gerard PiquĂ©, and for those wondering why Lionel MessiÂ wasn’t in it, the explanation is quite easy actually…Â The Argentinian is sponsored by Adidas, one of Nike‘s biggest rivals in the sports gear field. Who certainly didn’t have problems in making the cut was Marvel‘s special hero Hulk, who made his appearanceÂ as a goalkeeper during a corner-kick play.
The two football stars who ended up showing in the most scenes of this NikeÂ ad videoÂ wereÂ Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar, precisely Nike‘s biggest marketing flagships in the sport these days…
