vive le football video

To accompany the kit created for the French national team and the NSW apparel collection created for the fans, Nike has put together this video, featuring both professional and amateur players. The dramatic voiceover is dialogue from a scene from the play Cyrano de Bergerac, narrated by French hip-hop artist Oxmo Puccino. The spot draws a parallel between the duel scene, in which Cyrano confronts a prince who dared threaten him, and French footballers at different levels competing against their opponents. The soccer fields range from Clairefontaine for the French national team, to the playgrounds of Belleville, Marseille and La Courneuve for the amateur players. The video is as bombastic and high budget as you would expect from Nike, so it's worth a watch even for those who aren't soccer fans. Check it out after the jump.
