A date for your diaries: Thursday 20 May at 6pm. Nike's launch of its World Cup commercial via a webcast on Facebook. This will be the official, global premiere of the full-length 3-minute content before it airs on UK TV.
But to whet our appetite, short clips are being released this week. The first of which went live on Saturday and features our national footballing hero Wayne Rooney as you've never seen him before - and hopefully as you'll never see him again.
After one wrong pass in a crucial match, we see how his glittering, international career could diminish into life in a trailer park. You can check out the clip below and then we recommend you put the webcast in your diaries - the World Cup comes around only once every four years and with this ad to kick off the tournament, it's not one to be missed. welcome to optimism
