I'm not even a soccer fan, but this video is about the coolest homage to any sport that I've ever seen.

Well done Nike. Well done!

By the way, I recommend going to the site and watching the full screen version.

Didn't Ronaldinho get left off Brazil's initial World Cup roster?

I hope Rooney gets a wee injury just for the USA game. I fear what he'll do to us.

Fantastic video.

The decision to leave him and Adriano out will lead to Dunga losing his job.

I think they took inspiration from this great commercial

I thought the soccer one was cooler because of the connection they showed with the broader culture.

Oh, the "soccer" ( ;) ) one is much better. They always do this leading to the World Cup, there was one with all the best players in the world playing against gladiators I think, then one set on a gunship with the remix of Elvis's Little less conversation...

They are always epic.

Great vid! I think Take It To The Next Level (director's cut) will probably always be my favorite, but I love the OP's vid as well as the amer. football Leave Nothing vid.

Not realistic at all. When he got tripped up at the end, he should have been on the ground for at least 5 more minutes. . .

Fear him....hehehe

I'm hoping that he'll be able to keep himself just enough under control that he doesn't get red-carded, but not hold himself back so much that it blunts his edge - i think his experience of other tournaments and the like will help as I think he is steadily maturing as a player...

He should rock that beard for the whole tournament BTW
