Nike Winner Stays in Risk Everything campaign
Nike is continuing the “Risk Everything” World Cup advertising campaign “Winner Stays”, a four minute film featuring football stars, teenage boys and a group of cameo ring-ins. The teenage boys imagine themselves as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Gerard Piqué, Gonzalo Higuaín, Mario Götze, Eden Hazard, Thiago Silva, Andrea Pirlo, David Luiz, Andrés Iniesta, Thibaut Courtois, and Tim Howard. Cameo appearances include The Hulk, Kobe Bryant, MMA stars Jon Jones and Anderson Silva and supermodel Irina Shayk. Viewers are invited to share their best football moments on the #RiskEverything site, nike.com/riskeverything, for a chance to be featured in a Nike highlight reel.
