Yep, I've got the World Cup fever

Sure, this little movie of sorts is really just a commercial for Nike, but aside from that annoyance, it's also a 3-minute bit of fun directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu.

The Wayne Rooney bit, while only at most slightly exaggerated, is very funny, and stick around to the end for an even better appearance from Gael Garcia Bernal (which has him in more soccer action than the disappointing "Rudo y Cursi" ever did.) Enjoy, and of course tune in for 2010 World Cup beginning June 11 with hosts South Africa v. Mexico (go Bafana Bafana!) and then the following day at 2:30 p.m. for U.S.A.-England. Viva futbol!
