Soccer Pros Turn into Rock Stars for Budweiser's 'Greatest Show on Earth'

Axl Rose Also Appears in New World Cup Ad via Brazilian Agency Africa

Editor's Pick

Brazilian agency Africa turns soccer pros into rock stars in Budweiser's star-studded World Cup spot, directed by Rodrigo Saavedra out of Landia. The commercial sees famous athletes -- Brazil's Hulk, Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o, England's Gary Cahill and Japan's Maya Yoshida -- take the stage and various instruments in a performance of Guns n' Roses' Paradise City. Even Axl Rose appears in an audience cameo, along with other UFC star Anderson Silva. The massive shoot took place in London and Uruguay.
