Destructive Soccer Ads

This Adidas World Cup Ad Shows Star Players Trashing David Beckham's House

— June 9, 2014 — Lifestyle
With wave upon wave of star-studded soccer commercials hitting the airwaves in the build-up to the World Cup, you might wonder what could possibly be different about the latest Adidas World Cup ad. Well what this ad does differently from other ads is that it doesn't simply star the game's most high-profile players, but actually stars two active players and two past legends. Incredibly, the two active players who do star in the ad won't even be taking part in the World Cup.

The Adidas World Cup ad shows contemporary star players Gareth Bale (whose team Wales did not qualify for the World Cup) and Lucas Moura (who wasn't selected in Brazil's World Cup squad) hanging out with two of the game's retired legends, Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham, in Beckham's house.

Bale and Moura are seen playing a soccer video game and making a mockery of Zidane and Beckham's gaming avatars. This angers the two retired players, who challenge the two young players to a real game.

The players then proceed to play soccer for real in Beckham's house, trashing his house and its contents while showcasing some mad skills along the way.
