I don't know if this has already been posted, but this is the new Nike advert I think.

Fake or not?

i don't think thats fake..thats Rooney he can do anything...

and i don't think its impossible because sometime i pile up some bricks and put like a soccer ball or a basket ball on it and i try to hit it form the 20 yard line..

i make it most of the time. :D

Well, no, it's not fake, but that was probably about the 5th time they did it.

Impossible




























is nothing.

Just joking, I don't think it is real.

It shouldn't be fake because you should have enough accuracy at his level to hit something within half a foot from that distance. It probably took them a couple of tries though to get everything perfect, did you see how it curved though??? Pretty cool i think, the comments below the vid said they used different camera angles or something, so i dunno, he should be able to do it though.

Well personally I think it's real, I mean I'm pretty sure Rooney has enough accuracy to hit that. But it's probably not on his first try.

I'm pretty certain it's real, mostly because you can see it took him a few tries. Pause it at 18 seconds and on the bottom left side you can see that the circle has been drawn on and wiped off before. Oh well, cool advert anyways.

It looks pretty real to me. I mean, it doesn't suddenly switch camera angles or anything like in that Ronaldinho 'ping pong' video. (I think that's what it was called.) My best guess would be that it's authentic

That looks sweet! Whether its real or not. But its Nike.. they always retry things or plan it out. So im guessing he had more than one shot.

e.g. the Nike Street soccer with Thierry Henry and those other young lads.. of course they planned it..
