Despite watching virtually zero advertising (and generally disliking the profession altogether), I have to admit… I’m still a sucker for good adverts. And this Nike Football advert I noticed while watching the opening match for my Netherlands in the Euro ’08 Championships last night on my PVR (directed by Guy Ritchie) struck me as totally flippin’ awesome.

This was the dream of every kid booting a ball around on a crappy dirt field.

  • The Dutch were great, right? They took it right to Italy.

    FYI, watching soccer in downtown Dusseldorf was nothing short of amazing. Right on the Rheine. Some tune up game I think and you’d have thought it were the Super Bowl. They take that shit very seriously. Every shop was full of stuff in flag colors.
