Nike is one of the brands that has had some of the best World Cup advertisements throughout the tournament’s history. This year is no different. They just released their World Cup ad for 2022. It features soccer superstars like Kylian Mbappé, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo. In it, the players are transported to a seemingly different universe, to a secret lab in Switzerland in which scientists are working to find out who really is the best soccer player. The three-minute commercial flies by as more and more players show up and even some fictional characters when things go awry. Check out the full video above.
