Football Pros and Other Celebs Play in Nike's Spectacular World Cup Pick-Up Game

Boys' Match Turns Blockbuster When Top Soccer Stars Take Over

Editor's Pick

Nike continues its "Risk Everything" World Cup ambush with this blockbuster four-minute film, "Winner Stays," featuring a bevy of superstars, from soccer pros to other celebrities from the sports and entertainment worlds.

A simple boys' pick-up game gets a beefy boost when the young players imagine themselves as their favorite football pros. Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Roony, Neymar Jr., Zlatan Ibrahimović, David Luiz, Gerard Piqué, Mario Götze, Eden Hazard, Thiago Silva, Gonzalo Higuaín, Andrea Pirlo, Tim Howard, Andrés Iniesta and Thibaut Courtois -- as well as unlikely players like the Hulk, face off in the world's most unbelievable match-up.

Other famous faces like Kobe Bryant, MMA stars Jon Jones and Anderson Silva and supermodel Irina Shayk make cameos in which they cheer them on and even argue over the ref's calls.

The ad was created out of Wieden + Kennedy, Portland and directed by Rattling Stick's Ringan Ledwidge. It follows the brand's "Risk Everything" anthem spot released earlier this month and directed by Jonathan Glazer.
