Now that the US Men’s Soccer Team has advanced through the “Group Of Death” to the Round of 16, it is a good time to stop and appreciate the brands who have capitalized on the World Cup.
First is a commercial by FIFA promoting their video game. It depicts Landon Donovan poking fun at his misfortune of not making the USA Team in the final weeks prior to the Cup.
Next is a commercial by Budweiser. How could I do a post about sports commercial and not have of them be about Budweiser? Their commercial asks us to forget our differences and “Rise As One”.
Then there’s KIA with a set of commercials starring supermodel, Adriana Lima. Adriana is on a mission to teach you about “futbol” and she is persuasive…
Finally, Hyundai’s World Cup inspired commercial dares to assume that becasue of Futbol the next generation will be affected with a “boom”. #BecauseFutbol
To all of these brands and the many more I could not include, I thank you. Thank you for entertaining us before, during (halftime that is), and after the games with these top notch campaigns.
