Kid Nutmegs Rooney - Nike Five Tournament Ad

Nike football ads have always been great fun. The advert that takes place in an airport is still one of my all time favourites. However, this latest ad has definitely put a smile on my face.

Whilst recording the advert with Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand in Manchester for the Nike Five 5-a-side Tournament, one kid manages to nutmeg Wayne Rooney and then score a goal (much to the enjoyment of Rio Ferdinand!). This is commercial football at its best, when big multinational companies can take huge sports stars to normal everyday kids and have a kick-around. The potential of "pulling a fast one" over the major celebrities is just golden.

The rough cut for the ad combines both the main camera footage with a couple of mobile phone videos to capture this glorious moment.

A quick YouTube search later gives the full piece of mobile phone footage.
