Funny Ad by Adidas

During FIFA World Cup 2006, Adidas followed up the FIFA World Cup Recruitment campaign in April with Partido and Equipo, two television spots featuring young boys picking and managing their dream soccer teams. In “Equipo” (Equipment) José and Pedro, two Spanish-speaking boys, fantasize about who would be in their dream team. Before they know it, their dream players turn up, even players from the past such as Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini. In “Partido” (Party) José and Pedro, as captains of their own dream teams, play against each other in what appears to be a parallel of a 1966 FIFA final between England and Germany. Kaká is sent off and Jermain Defoe is chosen to go into goal.
