The greatest World Cup TV advert ever?

With The World Cup almost upon us, now is the season where everything with a brand name tries to cash in on the greatest show on turf by loosely attaching itself to football (see: The Mars John Barnes advert for more). So far, Nike’s feature length advert staring Wayne Rooney, Christiano Ronaldo and Homer Simpson is leading the herd with a jam packed high speed footie match - that was, before Adidas launched theirs.

Adidas’ Originals’ advert has to be not only be one of the greatest telly adverts ever it’s almost one of the most surreal and random, having spoofed the famous Mos Eisley cantina scene from the original Star Wars, (kerching!). Characters such as Luke Sky Walker, are replaced by Snoop Dog, Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Daft Punk, Franz Beckenbauer and David Beckhman. In short it’s mental.

If you don’t believe us press play for yourself...
