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…

    I’ve heard a terrible, vicious rumour that some of that was achieved through re-shoots and editing.

    This is fake for one simple fact, that chinless didn’t cry throughout any of it.

    Must be edited for the simple fact that nadal does not pick his butt in it – he has a short-eating arse that needs to be picked A LOT during matches. Add to it his white sailor-pants that show his string-thingy-thong thing is godawful.

    Can only be topped by adding crispy to the picture.

    Need some eye-bleach now.

    Sure it’s a fine advert but I’m still not paying £130 for a pair of boots.

  5. Zirconium says:

    I think they decided to cut the advert before Ronaldo started punching Rafa repeatedly in the face for not giving his boots back.

    um…why bother?
