Vanity Fair loves sexy footballers

In sexy men news, Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba are mostly naked on the June cover of Vanity Fair.  Shot by Annie Liebovitz, the soccer stars were photographed in different locations.

It appears, however, that Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy to be sharing underwear time with his rival.

It’s been rumoured that Ronaldo wants to sue Vanity Fair for using his image to promote it’s June issue.

Ronaldo, 25, became the highest-paid soccer player in the world last June when Real Madrid bought him from Manchester United for a record-breaking $130 million.

Ronaldo’s Portugal and Drogba’s Ivory Coast face each other in their World Cup openers on June 15th.

Both are part of Group G, which is considered the tournament’s Group of Death, which means tha at least one quality team won’t move on past the group stage.  Group G includes three of the world’s best teams: Brazil, Portugal, and Ivory Coast, as well as the super secretive North Korea.

The article inside is just as good, with pictures of Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o, Ghana’s Sulley Muntari, the U.S.A.’s Landon Donovan, Brazil’s Kaká and Pato, Italy’s Gianluigi Buffon, Serbia’s Dejan Stankovic, England’s Carlton Cole, and Germany’s Michael Ballack.

Now if only they would play the game dressed like this, I really feel more women would watch.  I know I wouldn’t look away!!

Nike’s “Write The Future”

Nike has come out with an amazing new commercial for the World Cup.

Entitled “Write The Future,” this three minute epic commercial features more than a dozen of the world’s best players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba, Landon Donovan, Ronaldinho, and Thiago Silva, as well as special guest cameos from tennis legend Roger Federer, basketball superstar Kobe Bryant and Homer Simpson.

I love this commercial. I think all the scenarious are brilliant. Showing the excitement of an imminent goal, the disappointment when it doesn’t happen, and the reaction to a surprise save is an amazing way to show all sides of one event. Rooney’s fantasy on winning and losing are absolutely hilarious, and Ronaldinho’s moves being YouTubed and ‘liked’ is a great way to show exactly how one moment becomes defining.

Here it is, in it’s full, three-minute format. I believe there is a short, TV-friendly version, but who wants to see that one??

Nike has always been known to have some of the best commercials out there for the World Cup. Two of the best examples I found were the Brazilian team waiting in the airport (which cause airports around the world to ban copycat fans) and the one where the soccer players are secret agents.

Hope you all enjoy watching them, and feel free to let me know of any others out there.
