Watch: The Hulk Stops By In 4-Minute Nike World Cup Ad

Watch: The Hulk Stops By In 4-Minute Nike World Cup Ad

The World Cup will soon be upon us and advertisers are mobilizing to get the attention of the world. And Nike’s Risk Everything campaign is rolling hard, kicking off with an ad directed by Jonathan Glazer. Now Ringan Ledwidge is behind the camera for the next spot which is a bit more light-hearted, and a lot more random.

Running four-minutes long, the commercial brings together the big names of footie you’d expect—Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Gerard Piqué and more—but it also has bonkers cameos by the likes of Kobe Bryant, supermodel Irina Shayk and uh, The Hulk. Don’t ask us, we don’t get it either, but you can watch it below to see for yourself. [The Inspiration Room]

As Karl H wrote in his comment, there's a Brazilian footballer called Hulk, but that's not his real name. He got his name after… guess what: The Hulk.

And he pronounces his name a little differently, with "u", like the "oo" in good.

There's a Brazilian footballer called Hulk, hence why he shouts Hulk to turn into the player but turns into the Incredible Hulk.
