Nike's Advert Starring Brazil's National Team In An Airport Is Legendary

Nike's Advert Starring Brazil's National Team In An Airport Is Legendary

If you remember the 1998 World Cup then you'll have fond memories of Nike's iconic advert filmed in an airport.

Brazil had won the World Cup four years previously, so expectation was high before the tournament. The fact that Ronaldo was already a two time World Player of the Year despite only being 21 just summed up the countries immense talents.

And to celebrate their samba style of play, Nike released an absolute classic. Sit back, relax and let the good times roll.

The above commercial helped them stand out among the rest. Unfortunately, it didn't help this time around.

Nike pulled off another brilliant advert from Coutinho nutmegging Willian to Ronaldo trying to redeem himself at the airport.

There's nothing more wonderfully nostalgic than the 1998 Brazil side, so this definitely wet the appetite ahead of this summer's tournament.

Now, let's go back in the time to the year 2002 and remember when the world's best came face to face with a bunch of Sumo wrestlers for a truly iconic commercial.

The classic Pepsi advert starred the likes of David Beckham, Roberto Carlos, Raul and Gianluigi Buffon, as many recall it as one of the greatest ever.

Both camps go head to head in a Japanese training camp and well, the rest is history. From sumo overhead kicks to sumo Jurgen Klinsmann celebrations, Pepsi pulled this one out of the bag, 16 years ago.


Pepsi continued to produce gold on our TV screens and in 2011, David Beckham divided the world when he appeared in one of the most memorable adverts of all time.

If you're a sceptic like me, then you'll have questioned this almost impossible feat straight away, but the 43-year-old has always maintained that the footage is genuine.

The debate still continues to this day on social media, seven years after it was released.


Beckham, who was playing with LA Galaxy at the time, smashes three shots into three different trash cans as a very excited bloke commentates over the entire thing.

We bow down to your wand of a right foot, David, but we're not entirely convinced.

is it genuine or fake? You decide.
