The Top 10 Futbol Adverts

by Luke Taylor | | 0 comments

Many football adverts have been and gone from various brands but sometimes, a brand manages to master the art of creating a commercial for their products. This list is dominated by Nike (because they're the best at it) but also includes Pepsi and McDonalds. 

Honorable Mentions

10. Pepsi: Football Stars vs Sumo Wrestlers 

A star studded advert with cameos from David Beckham, Gianluigi Buffon, Raul, Roberto Carlos and many others. The advert sees this star studded line up be challenged by Sumo wrestlers for a game. The winner? They get Pepsi. An inclusion of a sumo sized rainbow flick, an overhead kick which beats Buffon and a shirt swap which hilariously shows the size difference between the two sides. Enjoy it for yourself below. 

9. Pepsi: Medieval Battle

An invasion from some bad guys who take all the Pepsi sparks a reaction from some of the greatest talents to play the game. Featuring Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho, David Beckham, Francesco Totti and more. They use their skills to claim back the Pepsi (which is a regular occurrence in all of Pepsi's adverts..). Watch it below. 

8. Pepsi: South Africa 2010

Featuring a moving pitch made from human people alongside a game between world class stars and some kids, this advert doesn't fail to impress. The likes of Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Lionel Messi and more take on the kids who refuse to give them some Pepsi. "Do you know who we are?" 

7. Socceroos vs Beasts 

An advert for the brand Optus. The Socceroos come up against beasts in a game of football. Including animals such as elephants, ostriches and the man himself Tim Cahill. 

6. Adidas Jose+10 

Two kids go to play football in the street at their local pitch which leads to them picking teams. These teams happen to be filled with world class talent from Arjen Robben to Kaka and even to Michel Platini and Franz Beckenbauer. Watch the madness unfold. 

5. Nike: Take it to the Next Level 

From the point of view of an aspiring footballer, this advert follows his journey from being scouted playing amateur football by Arsene Wenger to playing with Wesley Sneijder for the Netherlands. A really inspiring advert, well done Nike. 

4. McDonald's GOL for Brazil 2014

An advert without any big name stars making it to the top four? Yes indeed. A whole hosts of insane trick shots from amateur footballs provides such an entertaining watch. This is one you show your friends in amazement. Featuring a skills from a motor scooter and a bin shot on the back of a moving truck. 

 3. Nike: Write the Future 

An advert featuring Didier Drogba, Paolo Cannavaro, Wayne Rooney and many more sees the ongoings on the pitch and how they affect the future. Cannavaro becomes a superstar in Italy with a song sang about him whilst Rooney lives out of a caravan. A cameo from Landon Donovan and Tim Howard also appears. 

2. Nike: The Airport

A controversial number 2, many believe this is the greatest advert created but it's been beat to the top spot just. However, this advert is still incredible. Ronaldo and the Brazil team have a kickabout due to their flight being delayed. Running way from security and some amazing skills, a superb advert from Nike. Peep the ending as well...

1. Nike: Winner Stays On 

A game of winner stays on in the park turns into one of the biggest games ever. Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, David Luiz (x2), Zlatan Ibrahimovic and even The Hulk (the big green one). I don't think you could get any more talent into one advert. Wow.
