Anderson Silva Makes Cameo in New Brasilian Nike Commercial [VIDEO]

(“Train? I didn’t have time to train with all of the commercial shoots the last six months.”)

King of all Brazilian Media Anderson Silva¬†makes a brief appearance Nike’s new “Brasil vs. Brasil” commercial. Nike is one of the marquee companies on Silva’s bluechip sponsor roster alongside Burger King, Ford and the Corinthians soccer team.

The message of the ad, which also features members of the Brasilian national soccer team, former Brasil player Ronaldo and singer Thiaguinho, is “Triumph Over Your Shadow.” In one-minute spot, Brasil players ¬†Neymar, Ganso, Pato, Thiago Silva, and Mascherano play against themselves in their away jerseys.

Cool enough concept, but we’re not sure why Anderson was in it, other than to prove that soccer is the most popular sport in the country. I wonder if Nike would put GSP in a hockey commercial.

I don't find it TOO odd, since Kobe Bryant has been in many Nike SB commectials, too. And as far as I know, Kobe does not skate.

Mascherano plays for Argentina. He's the guy sitting on the end of the bed.

After I read "Brasil players Neymar, Ganso, Pato, Thiago Silva, and Mascherano play against themselves" I was worried that this was gonna be some sort of circle jerk video. Sadly . . . . . is was about soccer.
