Nike has launched “My Time Is Now”, an advertising campaign for the 2012 European championship, promoting a new generation of football players and the Clash Collection boot collection. A three-minute film opens on a soccer match between France and Holland. The field is taken over by young players from “The Chance,” Nike’s scouting mission to find 100 potential soccer champions from 50 countries. The commercial includes cameo appearances by Neymar, Franck Ribery, Wesley Sneijder, Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck, and even LeBron James. The Youtube version of the film invites viewers to go through hidden tunnels to get a deeper look at athletes and their inspirations.
