Pepsi is unveiling a new World Cup short film set to the song 'Unstoppable' by Dutch producer and DJ R3HAB and dance-music sensation Eva Simons. The song, which celebrates the drive and talent that we all possess, was created exclusively for the 'Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game' album. It was inspired by the big-room sound and high energy of soccer stadiums.

The film is directed by British actor Idris Elba of 'The Wire' and 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' fame. The video depicts a schoolboy is subjected to relentless bullying, until his bullies discover that he has some pretty dope soccer skills. Elba wrote the script and set the story not in the present time but back in the 1970s, considered the golden age of World Cup soccer.
