Nike's 5-Minute 'The Last Game' Cartoon Is Incredible

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterJune 9, 2014


Nike's long-teased #RiskEverything cartoon "The Last Game" was released, and it's every bit as good as we expected.

In an epic five-minute animated spot, some of the world's best footballers are put out of business by a team of clones.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reduced to hawking copies of his autobiography, while Wayne Rooney is a fisherman.

Ronaldo (of the Brazilian variety) rallies the forgotten footballers to a winner-takes-all match against the clones.

The cartoon includes it all: Ibrahimovic third-person references and Neymar taking a selfie with a clone after bamboozling it with his ball skills.

Well played, Nike. Well played.
