Internet detectives are tearing the ad apart
The Cristiano Ronaldo/Nike love affair has been going on for a while now. Building off the hype they’ve created with an incredibly successful partnership, Nike started a new ad campaign on Sunday. Off Ronaldo’s second consecutive Champions League Final win, Nike launched an ad with a picture of a young Ronaldo. The picture features the footballer as a kid looking through a goal net.
The picture was captioned “Nobody believed a boy from Madeira would make it to the stars. Except the boy from Madeira.” It didn’t take the internet long to point out that the picture was cropped specifically to cut out the Adidas logo on his sweater.
