Wow! I watch a lot of futbol here in Mexico and that's a great commercial. I even recognize most of the players!

Love this commercial (especially as an Arsenal fan).

The only thing slightly askew is Wesley Sneijder handing over a free-kick opportunity that easily!

O-M-G! How could I have missed this? That's fantastic. Genuinely thebesy commerical ever. And
the best sport in the world.


Thanks for that. Manchester United supporter here!

Love it! My husband came across it a couple weeks ago and kept replaying it so he could point out all the players. Hat's off to the ad agency that came up with that one.

Atletico Madrid and Inter supporters in this house. Hope everyone's enjoying the Euro Championships!

Did you see that Italy v Holland match? And Sneijder's goal? A good friend of mine looked up the rules and determined that the first goal was legal because a defensive player off the pitch still counts in the offside rule, if he left the field without the referee's permission.

What a game that was.

Re the commercial, the first time I saw this was about a month ago. Loved it then, love it now.

Well my first thought was that the storyboard for that epic must have been outrageous.

My second thought was that there is a special place in hell for people who put barf in a commercial for comic effect (Yeah, I'm lookin' at YOU, eTrade, and your talkin' barfin' baby). They ought to have to pay for the meal anybody had in their mouth the every time such commercials air.

And my dominant thought is rarely has a second person POV commercial been so effective.

Moreso without barf.

Mr. Lyon's, that come back commment was sheer brilliance.
That has to be said.

And I guess I'm a guy too - but my parents were told I was a girl and it seems that I am - who likes vomit.

Couldn't resist.

I think there might even be a longer version of the commercial.

My favorite part is the knocked out tooth. Love it!

Haven't seen most of the games yet, but they've been Tivo'd and are waiting to be watched when we can get a kid-free night and a pint of Guinness into us.

Yeah, I totally loved that commercial when I saw it a few days ago!

Have to say, though, this one is pretty neat too:

I saw the ad on TV last night. It wasn't the full length but it's cool anyway!
