Can you hear the ‘Dingbat klaxon’ going off? We read the press release as ‘Ronaldo vs Rafael Benitez in a battle of explosive speed’ and got all kinds of excited.

Sadly, a quick re-read reveals that the Rafa in question is indeed Spanish tennis behemoth Señor Nadal in the viral launch for Nike’s new Mercurial Vapor 8 boots. Shame.

Still pretty cool mind…

We got a few ‘behind the scenes’ photos for y’all as well. Don’t say we never spoil you…
