Do me a favour. If you haven’t watched “The Last Game“, Nike’s new animated Nike film, then go and watch it now. It is the best football animated film ever that features animated characters of today’s football superstars. You will see Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Franck Ribery, Andres Iniesta, etc, like you never seen them before. Just check on the part 3 (final) video below:
With World Cup getting closer, Nike has come up with this five-minute animated film as part of their ‘riskeverything’ campaign. It tells the story of eight players that are charged with winning football back having been forced out of the game by dull clones. Taken away from the game, all eight players are forced to take up ‘normal’ jobs following the clones’ arrival. Then, Brazil legend Ronaldo – the all-time leading World Cup goalscorer with 15 goals – decides he must save the game by rescuing the players for a winner-take-all clash against the clones.
Favourite Part In ‘The Last Game’
There are many parts in the film that excites me. My favourite is certainly when Neymar dribbles the clone and then selfie with one of them. The Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s scissor kick also looks very cool in the video. But the honour of saving the football goes to none other Cristiano Ronaldo who scores the winning goal. Too bad, Lionel Messi is under Adidas and not Nike. It will be interesting how the director decides how to end the story with both inside the film.
By the way, here’s what Nike’s Chief Marketing Officer Davide Grasso has to say about the film:
The final 90 seconds of The Last Game prove, beyond any doubt, that brilliant football should be the only kind of football. Brilliant, creative, risk-taking football. That is what #riskeverything is all about.
