I'm Cool With One Of The Best Cartoons Of The Year Also Being An Ad

This is The Last Game. It's a 5:28 animated short that is many things. It's a commercial for Nike. More importantly, it's a "World Cup" commercial for Nike when it's not actually allowed to make official World Cup commercials (since that's Adidas' job). But I don't care about any of those things. I just love it as a cartoon.

The art style, the animation, the humour (which, I'll admit, it helps if you're a football fan to get the most out of), it's all top-shelf.

Especially the Wayne Rooney clone. Those little eyes, oh, so bereft of... anything.

The short was a collaboration between studios Wieden+Kennedy & Passion.

    I'm not even a Soccer fan and it was pretty entertaining

    It's... really not that great. I think someone has a dose of World Cup fever.
