This is actually pretty old — it came out during the last World Cup (and gave Elvis Presley a posthumous #1 single with the Junkie XL “Little Less Conversation” remix.)
Yeah, it’s pretty old. If you look at the new Joga Bonito commercial, you’ll notice that Eric Cantona has gained a lot of weight since the Nike one. I guess beach soccer doesn’t require him to stay very fit.
I guess that’s what I get for not really paying attention to sports. Still, I’m surprised. Gilliam doesn’t seem like the type who would helm a Nike commercial.
