A man is only as good as his word, as his practice, as his performance and talent. But what makes a good man better than the next, especially on court, faced with overcoming two other men-- himself, and his opponent? For the world's greatest soccer players in the decade, Nike Mercurial cleat has been there for the heroes of speed, including Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo, Franck Ribery, Daniel Alves, Mesut Ozil, Didier Drogba and Robinho. The cleats and the men of unparalleled speed and skill are reanimated by Croatian artist, Danijel Zezelj, in Nike Stadium's new campaign, Heroes of Speed. Zezelj and illustrator Paolo Sabellucci created an animated trailer documenting ten memorable soccer moments by the Nike Mercurial athletes to celebrate the decade of innovation, legend and talent of both the athletes and the Mercurial. Check out the microsite which not only features a trailer, but also gives a pictographic timeline rundown of the evolution of the perennial Mercurial, the men who donned them, and an augmented reality lookbook which enables the viewer to animate each athlete with a special code embedded in the lookbook.
