Best Soccer Commercial Ever
Nike soccer has really stepped their game up. This commercial for Nike's new "Take it to the Next Level" campaign is a thing of beauty.
In the video you follow journey of a young teen playing in a youth game, who is spotted by Arsenal, who then plays alongside Fabregas, and against players like Rooney, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, and ultimately plays with the Netherlands national team.
When I first saw the video I immediately thought the player that we are seeing play was Robin van Persie because he was the only person I knew on Arsenal that was from the Netherlands.
However, van Persie is sponsored by Adidas, and if you slow down the footage you see on the players shorts that he is wearing either number 45 or number 43. I had to look it up but the only other player on Arsenal that is from the Netherlands is a 18 year old kid by the name of Nacer Barazite. He hasn't made an appearance for Arsenal yet.
