Before & After Ronaldo: Nike Soccer


Nike is to pay tribute to the soccer player Ronaldo on his farewell a friendly between Brazil’s national squad and Romania. Created by F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi, the clip Before and After depicts how the player split the world of football into two eras: before Ronaldo and after Ronaldo. In the 60”clip, we see the differentials of the Phenomenon, including his rapid-style play and technique, which influenced thousands of new players and fans alike, and gave Brazilian football unprecedented visibility. The airing accompanies the hashtag #prasemprefenomeno (phonemenaforever), created early this year when Ronaldo announced his retirement. The hashtag was a hit at the time, reaching first place in the Trend Topics Brasil within just hours, and topping the world Trend Topics minutes later, following the player’s official announcement.

Film advertisment created by Saatchi & Saatchi, Brazil for Nike, within the category: Fashion.

Yeah I saw this some days ago on some footie blog - loved it. At first I didn't get what A.R. and B.R. meant but after some time I got it and watched the whole thing again in new light. Love it.

May not be an absolute triumph, but it's significantly better than just a good effort.
