Cristiano Ronaldo Features In Cringeworthy 'Shopee' Advert Labelled 'The Worst Of All Time'
| Last updated
Cristiano Ronaldo scores a trademark free-kick from range. He celebrates by doing the "SIIIIII" celebration in front of thousands of fans. Sounds like a decent concept for a commercial, right? WRONG.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner, fresh from appearing in a boxing sketch with Neymar Jr, has featured in what many are calling 'the worst advert of all time.'
Singapore-based e-commerce portal Shopee may have splashed the cash on this one, but it's left many scratching their heads.
What in the world have I just watched?
Shortly after scoring a free-kick, Ronaldo is baffled when nobody reacts to his goal celebration.
He then looks at the crowd, who are too busy browsing the 'Shopee' mobile app to give a sh*t about the Juventus forward scoring a banger from range.
The referee then brandishes his very own 'Shopee' card in an Oscar-winning performance before CR7 bursts into song and dance to the classic "Baby Shark" theme.
The 34-year-old loves a good advert, and this parody of the 1990 classic Home Alone, created by Meo, is one of the best.
Ronaldo's mother Dona Dolores features in the spoof, with Ronaldo taking on Kevin McAllister's role.
The clip involves him doing the usual 'slap on aftershave on the face' scene as well as signing "I wish you a Merry Christmas" and frightening off a Pizza guy with the same technique Kevin famously used on the burglars.
But a couple of years ago, an inspirational advert ended up being a tad awkward.
Cristiano was taking a trip down memory lane when he posted this image of his younger self with the slogan 'Just Do It', the catchphrase of his sponsors Nike.
There was just one tiny problem - the young Ronaldo you see in the picture was apparently wearing an Adidas jumper at the time.
