    The best bit is at 0:27 when twirling on the spot causes two defenders to fall over beside him.

    I love how this one for the 2002 WC features players whose teams didn't even qualify...

    They're almost invariably awful, World Cup ads.

    Honourable exception (in fact I'm not even sure it's a WC one, now I think about it) is the Nike one with Eric Cantona as the MC with all the contemporary greats playing first goal wins in what looked like a aircraft carrier. IIRC A Little Less Conversation by yer actual Pelv was the theme tune.

    I think that was just a standard Nike advert iirc.

    It has just made me think of the Gareth Southgate Pizza Hut advert mind you. Not a particularly fond memory, it must be said.

    Nike's ones are usually good.

    Their Brazil advert pre 1998 with the squad breaking into a game of football when their flight to France got delayed was pretty gun.

    Prophetically, it ended with Ronaldo hitting a makeshift post.

    edit: @ sledger was definitely pre WC 2002 that advert. Definitely their best.

    Haha that shot Roberto Carlos takes around 0.55 has so obviously been done with CGI

    Was going to mention that advert yesterday but it's not a World Cup one IIRC.
