Nike Risk Everything Commercial
 
I hadn't seen these posted but these are terrific soccer commercials. Nike spent some cash on these. Production quality is outstanding!



The animated one looks like a PIXAR movie.

They are pretty cool, but I just don't like soccer.

In that first commercial, how did some kid score on Tim Howard for the winning goal? How could Howard agree to that?!?! At least it wasn't Ronaldo scoring against Howard so no predicting any future there :thumbsup:

That's too bad. Because the most popular and most watched sporting event on the planet starts this Thursday and the global enthusiasm that exists around the World Cup is without a doubt the most real and intense and all encompassing of any single sporting event there is.

More than the super bowl, world series, NBA and NHL playoffs, the Masters, any NASCAR event, etc. combined.

Last time around over 3.2 billion people tuned in to watch with over 909.5 million showing up for just the final...In comparison the Super Bowl this year got about 112 million. That's over 3000 million viewers vs. 112 million...which was the most watched sporting event in US history.

None of this means you should somehow like any part of it and I realize you never tried to disregard its impact but it is without a doubt one of the single biggest events on the planet for good reason.

I know me and my family cannot wait. Especially my kids and the kids around here who care more about soccer than a lot of older Americans can seem to wrap their collective brains around.

Yes, money. I get it but Howard hardly gets any time in the video. None of the other players in the video look bad but the winning goal is scored against Howard by a kid.

Your right, but as an American, and most other american sports enthusiasts, many of us do not like soccer. Just doesn't appeal to us, as well as the fights and deaths resulting from the games. It is a mad house. Besides a game where most likely they will score no more than 3 points is pretty damn boring in general. That's just my taste though, means nothing is wrong with it, but I just don't watch it.

Same here. I've tried to watch it, but I would rather watch my grass grow. Same with hockey for me.

How many soccer games have you watched? Ever seen a boring football game? Not every game is going to be exciting. A 2-2 or 3-3 draw can be an AWESOME match and extremely exciting. Can you look at the score of a football game and tell me if it was exciting or boring? I'm going to guess no and the same can be said for soccer as well.

As a fan of soccer the last few years, there are things I like and don't like in the game. That can be said for EVERY sport on the planet. No sport is perfect. Scoring doesn't make a game exciting just as diving doesn't ruin a game (although it does detract from the sport when it's used to try and manipulate outcomes).

As for deaths and fights in soccer, this isn't the problem of the sport but a culture that is FAR, FAR different from the US. Having traveled to a number of countries over the years, I can explain this to you if you're interested. But don't blame the sport for cultural problems.

I agree there is nothing wrong with anyone not liking it, but when I see anyone making comments like yours, imho, it reeks of ignorance of the sport. Now I'm not saying you're ignorant to soccer, for all I know you've given it a complete and fair chance, and it still doesn't appeal to you. I'm just saying that's the way those answers come across to me. I liken it to people who hate mma fighting because they say "all they do is lay on top of each other, its gay". It seems to me like a casual fan who is only there for the knockouts, but doesn't understand nor care to understand all the intricacies of the sport that are going on while they are "laying on top of each other". It also strikes me that people with your answers find football games that aren't high scoring boring. I would rather South Carolina win a 10-0 game and dominate the line of scrimmage and hold the opposing offense to like 100 yards than see a 56-35 game. But to each his own.

In due time this sport will be a big player in the USA. Not to sound rude but once the older generation starts to kick the bucket the youth now will make this sport rise very quick IMO. It is one of if not the most popular sport amongst the younger generation now.

I also believe that this World Cup will have a very good viewer rating in the US this cycle around, especially after all the drama the men's and women's teams produced the past two world cups.

People on here who say not enough scoring in soccer were probably jizzing their pants over that snooze Fest of a "Game of the Century"
