World Cup and the Brands who are #Winning

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 aΒ post about sports commercial and not have of them be about Budweiser? Their commercial asks us to forget our differences and “RiseΒ 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 thankΒ you. Thank you for entertaining us before, during (halftime that is), and after the games with these top notch campaigns.

USA, USA, USA!

Well folks, it is that time again. The FIFA World Cup is number one on everyone’s minds. Whether you are a soccer fan or not, that doesn’t matter. What matters is national pride.

It is just like in the Olympics, I may not care anything about a sport for the other 3 and a half years, but when that star spangled banner starts flying, I’m cheering for the USA!

Same goes for the World Cup, I am admittedly not a soccer fanatic, but you can bet I am cheering these guys on. All my news feeds are flooded with war cries and chants.

If you haven’t jumped on the banwagon, it’s not too late. The United States Mens Soccer Team just won a major game against their rivals from Ghana (who put them out the last 2 World Cups). Using the hashtags #IBelieveThatWeWillWin and #OneTeamOneNation, you can show your national pride and be a soccer fan, if just for this one month every 4 years.

I may have already tweeted this, but it still gives me chills. You don’t have to be a soccer fan, but you should be a fan of your country.
