As Neymar Jr. readies himself to return to the pitch, Nike has teamed up with creative agency Wieden + Kennedy once again for a new commercial entitled “Mirrors”.
Starring the Brazilian forward, the spot focusses on the the new Hypervenom boots that he'll be playing in this season and draws upon Neymars ability to trick the opposing team's defence. “This is Neymar Jr. in his Hypervenom boots,” says Nike. “This is what it’s like to try to stop him.” The Hypervenom Phantom is now available at Nike.
