Nike unveils animated short: The Last Game

It's 'The Incredibles' meets 'Despicable Me', and starring some of football's biggest names in animated form. Nike's latest offering ahead of the World Cup is a blast and a half.

Imagine a world in which the biggest football superstars have been cloned. Perfect specimens of some of the best athletes in the world, minus the trappings that come with fame. No camouflage Bentley Continental GTs, or social media scandals, or backchat with the coaching staff.

Football would be better off, right?

Not so fast. What happens when the clones lack all individuality and games become predictable and... boring?

Never fear for the real footballers are back to save the day.

Watch Brazil's Neymar and David Luiz, England's Wayne Rooney, USA's Tim Howard, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, France's Franck Ribery plus Andres Iniesta and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (in Barcelona and PSG gear) kick some clone butt to take back our beautiful game!

We'll say no more, you can watch the rest of it in the video below.

Sometimes you've got to #riskeverything.
