Following the successful virals featuring Wayne Rooney, Franck Ribery and Theo Walcott, Nike has released the next in the ‘Make the Difference’ series with Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin.
There is, however, something of a cruel twist in the timing.
The video shows Arshavin, who wears the Mercurial Vapor Superfly football boot, as the victim of a bad foul, crashing to the turf whilst his team mates berate the opposition players.
The atmospheric voice-over suggest that Arshavin could limp away from the action or instead, get back on his feet and re-enter the fray which of course is what he does.
Sad then that the player is out for up to three games after aggravating a groin injury while playing for Russia against Wales in midweek.
Annoyingly for Arsenal, this is certainly a case where life hasn’t imitated art.
really nice video, short but nice xb
This guy is one of the best players in the Prem. Certainly the best creative player around.
He will be in the mix for player of the year if he stays fit.
Awesome ad, agreed with Ruden – too short!
Still, next time I hit the turf in the mud – I know what I’ll be thinking…
“Sounds like an insult to me…”!
haha, i love this advert!! i think they are way better than the F50 ads, I think a poll maybe on the cards??
Arshavin has settled very well in the EPL, but for him to win player of the year is a bit wide of the mark.
Great vid mind.
fav player although im a liverpool fan (check my name;)
gave me chills..
