Nike has launched a rocking, new 3-minute ad entitled 'My Time is Now' to debut ahead of the Euro Cup Championships, which features a cast of footballers –– with a few surprises along the way.
The new ad, featuring such stars as Franck Ribery and Wesley Sneijder was uploaded to YouTube by NikeFootball on May 18, 2012 and has already racked up 9,496,632 views and counting.
In the film, what starts out as a match between the Netherlands and France, is invaded by a third squad that multiplies quickly, Yahoo! Sports notes.
As the Mirror reports, other players you'll spot include Andres Iniesta, Mario Götze, Mesut Özil, Yann M’Vila, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck while there are also special guest appearances from Pep Guardiola, Lauren Blanc and basketball superstar LeBron James.
Neymar and Gerard Pique also appear throughout the frenetic clip, that will be screened during the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea on Saturday, but the film's special moment belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo.
At the end of the video (on the Internet version), Yahoo! says, the viewer is asked to search the film for "hidden tunnels", which leads to a second, interactive film.
