This peculiar new Puma World Cup ad stars charismatic Italy star Mario Balotelli. Balotelli is a player who is always in the news, whether for his incredible talent on the field or his exploits off it, which include setting off firecrackers in his bathroom and injuring a teenager with a dart.
This video shows the AC Milan striker interviewing himself and answering questions on a range of topics.
Balotelli's trademark ego and direct, honest style is on full display when his 'interviewer' asks him who he thinks is the best player on the squad. Balotelli replies saying, "You already know that." Similar responses are on offer when Balotelli asks Balotelli who is the coolest player in the Italian team, the funniest and the best-looking.
The Puma World Cup ad ends with the talented striker saying that it was an enjoyable interview with a "fantastic journalist."
