The Last Game

In a build up to the first match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Nike Football has released a five minute animated film that features some of the world’s greatest footballers on a mission to save football from the hands of a villainous mastermind, The Scientist.

In a future where brilliant football has ceased to exist and the game has become almost extinct. Brazilian legend Ronaldo (O Fenómeno) decides enough is enough and goes on a mission to reignite the game with brilliant football with the help of a re-assembled group of the world’s most brilliant players.

In the final minutes of the film, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Neymar Júnior, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andrés Iniesta, David Luiz, Franck Ribéry, Tim Howard and Ronaldo Fenomeno are seen battling the ‘perfect’ football clones in a winner take all match. 😎

The Goal Screen

To capitalize on the lead up of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Brazilian fast food chain Giraffas created a mobile game that turned their tray papers into a virtual soccer field. To play, the consumers had to rip the side of the paper tray, make a paper ball and flick it into their mobile screens. 😎

7 million tray papers were printed and the game was made possible by using the smartphone camera to recognize the ball distance, accelerometer to identify the trajectory of the kick and the microphone to recognize the area of the impact.
