Epic Beats Commercial for the World Cup is Packed with Superstars & Even Movie Posters (Video)
You have to give it to the Beats team, they not only have the ability to negotiate huge deals, they can put together a helluva commercial.
Nike and Addias used to have this area of emotional sports commercials on lock until now. This 5 minute ad in preparation for the World Cup in Brazil is tantamount to a mini movie. Even if you don’t like soccer, this damn commercial gets you so pumped up that you will be bouncing balls off your head before it’s through. The premise of the ad is that Beats is a part of your pre-game ritual or as they call it, “The Game before The Game”. GENIUS.
It has emotion, a musical score, great cinematography and plenty of star power not to mention it’s own movie posters.
The entire thing starts off with Neymar engaged in a pre-game facetime with his Dad….and it’s really his Dad and this is probably what he really does. Then about 1 minute 21 seconds in, the beat drops and you can feel the blood rushing through your heart. You just want to do something to somebody…you want to hit the gym….crank out some push-ups or just turn up the volume. It’s aid that Jimmy Iovine picks the music for these commericals himself.

The song playing is “Jungle” by Jamie N Commons & X Ambassadors, which will now be your new favorite workout song. As the bass hits you can enjoy the cameos by other soccer superstars:Bacary Sagna, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Blaise Matuidi, Cesc Fàbregas, Daniel Sturridge, Chicharito, Jozy Altidore, Luis Suárez, Mario Götze, and Robin van Persie
If you are like me, then you have no idea who any of those guys are. That’s OK. Beats took care of that too, they threw in plenty of celebrities for us selfish Americans who could care less about a sport we don’t dominate. LeBron James, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rafaella Beckran, Serena Williams, Sydney Leroux, Stuart Scott, and former players Rio Ferdinand and Thierry Henry all make an appearance as well.
Watch the commercial below – try not to get too pumped!! We Even have the 6 Movie posters!!
