‘The Last Game': Nike Football Releases World Cup Short Film (Video)

Nike Football

In the midst of their “Risk Everything” campaign, Nike has released a short film called The Last Game. It’s got a much headier premise than the usual Nike commercial, and an impressive cast of characters that includes Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar.

The premise is that in the future an evil corporate goon will replace all the world’s soccer players with “perfect” clones who don’t take risks as part of an initiative called “Risk Nothing.” The Originals are then reduced to menial jobs before legendary Brazilian footballer Ronaldo gathers them together for one last stand against their clones.

That last stand is the source of the title, “The Last Game,” and it’s pretty exciting, especially after the field gets flooded with clones and the Originals become (seemingly) hopelessly outnumbered. Hopefully the real World Cup will be this exciting.

You can watch The Last Game for yourself below. And for more from Nike’s “Risk Everything” campaign, check out its official website here.
