Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded as the best and most complete soccer player in the world, but the new Nike Perfect Kick video suggests that there might be a better player out there -- Ronaldo's animated alter-ego. The video is the latest in a line of amusing and often visually spectacular animated videos starring Nike's stable of soccer stars.

This particular video is less than half a minute long and depicts a free-kick situation. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most lethal free-kick takers in the game, and his unique style has won him many admirers. However, this video suggests that the animated Ronaldo might be even better.

The video depicts the animated Ronaldo striking an impossible free-kick that causes the ball to revolve around the goal and emerge from the other side before sneaking in past the bewildered goalkeeper. Stats for Gravity-Defying Soccer Videos Trending: Older & Chilly
