Dr Dre teams up with Neymar, Kane, Ozil for Epic World Cup Advert
With the World Cup fever catching on, football superstars Neymar, Harry Kane and Mesut Ozil star in an epic Guy Ritchie-directed World Cup advert for Beats by Dre, and it’s absolutely fantastic.
The short film – narrated by Peaky Blinders star Paul Anderson – kicks-off with a budding young footballer in Russia kicking a ball around in his kitchen.
Thrown outside by his mum, the youngster tangles with bullies, launches a ball at the big kids and is promptly chased down the street.
Cut to London, to meet Harry (not Kane) for track one of “The Mixtape”.
Both Walthamstow Harry and England star Kane are seen watching the 2014 World Cup in Brazil from home.
Watching the stars in action, Londoner Harry “couldn’t do that”. Kane though is defiant… and just four years has gone from couch to captain of the Three Lions (that’s Kane’s story, really).
Cut to Germany for track two of the mixtape and welcome Ozil – who is in search of a second straight World Cup crown… “just two?”, cries, well, Serena Williams!
Then it’s “bonjour” to Thierry Henry, cool as ever strolling down a spiral staircase, here to explain just what a mixtape is.
Sticking in France for track three, Benjamin “The Shark” Mendy takes on a starring role, making “defending sexy”… despite being hit by a car.
The video’s complete with Patrice Evra, who claims to have “made defending sexy ten years ago”, before roaring: “I love this game!” (you better believe him).
Still in France, in Paris, this time for track four, and it’s the big fish Neymar who makes an appearance – playing poker, spinning decks and taking the 7-1 thumping by Germany and turning it into passion.
From intro to “outro”, we segue back in Russia to check in our bold, bullied pal, whose name turns out to be Andre.
Turns out he’s inspired by our legends from the mixtape and is “the future of Russian football”.
Standing in front of four of the local bullies lined-up and ready to pounce, Andre fights back… with his feet.
He curls a beauty of a free-kick over the “wall” and straight into the top bins. “Well played, fella”, seems to be the reaction of the bullies – not unlike the ‘Roberto Carlos’…’step aside’ Pepsi ad of the France 98 World Cup
On the new line of headphones, Beats reveal: “Celebrating ten years of bringing you closer to the music, the Beats Decade Collection is for all those who refuse to settle for second best and never back down.
“The game rewards the ones who change it.”
Another Fifa World Cup is here again!
