Wayne Rooney Plays Golf to Debut Nike's New Soccer Ball

The Football Pro Hits New Turf to Introduce Sports Giant's New Equipment

Editor's Pick

Adidas recently debuted its official FIFA World Cup 2014 ball Brazuca with much fanfare, and now Nike, too, presents its own brightly colored orb, the Ordem Football, in this charming film starring Wayne Rooney, one of the football pros who starred in the brand's much-celebrated 2010 World Cup campaign "Write the Future." Created in-house at Nike and produced out of Great Guns, the spot shows Mr. Rooney stepping out onto new turf -- a golf course -- and going head to head with pro golfer Rory McIlroy. For unfamiliar ground, the football athlete's got impressive skills, even skipping the ball over a water trap.

Throughout, both players are pretty neck and neck -- until the final shot is made -- by noneother than Brazilian football legend Ronaldo. Frank Sinatra's classic "Straight Down the Middle" track adds even more lighthearted fun to the film.
