If you have even the slightest interest in football, world events or hunky dudes running around on a grassy field, someone will surely send you a link to this new Nike commercial today.
It features international footballers Wayne Rooney and Franck Ribery and "guest stars" such as Homer Simpson and Roger Federer. But most importantly: Cristiano Ronaldo, a.k.a. the highest paid player in the world and arguably the most popular (David Beckham, we hardly knew you). Ronaldo has been linked to Gemma Atkinson, Nereida Gallardo, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
Check it out. Pretty cool video.
