Incredible Hulk breaks out in Nike’s new World Cup ad

As I don’t follow soccer, I recognize only a few of the faces in “Winner Stays,” a four minute-plus ad — heck, it’s a short film — that’s debuted as part of Nike’s promotional campaign for the 2014 World Cup, but I don’t need any team rosters to pick out one of the players: the Incredible Hulk, who makes an appearance at about 2:30.

Now why does Marvel’s Green Goliath have a cameo? You’re asking the wrong guy — hey, I have trouble following the commercial’s plot — but Blastr suggests it’s a case of mistaken identity, as Brazilian player Givanildo Vieira de Souza, aka Hulk, is called in, but the emerald giant appears instead. Watch the full ad below.
