Great World Cup Commercials
If you've been watching the World Cup here in the US of A you've probably seen the Adidas commercial where the two kids pick football* dream teams to play a pickup game on a dirt field.
It turns out there is a longer version of the "picking teams" spot, and a followup spot where the teams play. I'm sure I would get more of the little in-jokes if I knew the players but they work anyway. Check 'em out:
In the first spot one of the kids laughs when the other picks Beckenbaeur - here's why: Franz Beckenbauer played for the German national team in the 70's. Everybody looks surprised when he actually shows up. Now can somebody explain to me what's funny about the guy who gets the keeper gloves?
* My people call it soccer.
