Nike's new World Cup ad looks like a Pixar short film


And soccer fans are going to love every second of it
Avid and casual soccer fans alike, this will be the most exciting commercial you've seen in a while.

On Monday, Nike released an ad in anticipation for the World Cup, which starts this week. The animated spot, which lasts 5 minutes, pits soccer superstars from all over the world against soccer-savvy clones.

The ad, of course, sets you up to cheer for the real people, since they play with heart and, as the company's tagline says, they risk everything.

The intensity of the game makes it feel like you're almost watching a movie. And it helps that the animation and music aren't too shabby, either.

The ad already has more than half a million hits on YouTube.
