Adidas "house match" by TBWA\Chiat\Day

The retired football stars Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham take on the newcomers Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura in Adidas' new TV ad.

TBWA\Chiat\Day created the spot, in which the four footballers have an impromptu kickabout in Beckham’s house. The work, which is part of Adidas’ "all in or nothing" Fifa World Cup 2014 campaign, was created by Linda Knight and John Figone, and directed by Fernando Meirelles and Cassiano Prada through 02 Films and Saville.
