You become a celebrity, then a commodity!
Cristiano Ronaldo is one hell of a player, and once you get to that level of fame where others can only envy you, you are bound to attract those who think they could take an advantage of your popularity. Ronaldo is no exception and is taken up by various giants to promote their products.
Here are some of the funniest advertisements you might have ever seen Ronaldo in. So, it's a commercial break for you to canter on!
This sports company put another sports heavyweight against Ronaldo, where he plays tennis with his feet against Rafael Nadal, who by the closing moments start playing football with CR7 himself. Sweet!
Flappers which would flap as you put in on the brim of your mouth was another commercial where Ronaldo projected his commercial value, this time for a Chinese company. Fame does cross borders indeed.
One of the most creative commercials by Nike, this one showed Ronaldo's skills and riches being "switched" to a young boy, another Cristiano Ronaldo. The commercial is one of the longest too, in terms of duration.
The boy grows up to be a football great in his own right, playing for Manchester City and England. Against Portugal, the two Ronaldos confront and get knocked down against each other, when CR7 lends the boy a helping hand. Science fiction and sports were never cooler.
Ronaldo liking a girl and not getting her? Seems highly unlikely, but this happened in the commercial. Ronaldo sees a beautiful, interested girl from the opposite window and starts getting undressed, much to his surprise. Do watch the video in the end to find out what happened ahead.
The telecom company made a robot out of Ronaldo who failed to score in a big match. In the lab, the researchers realized that only Turk Telecom could solve the problem. Only someone like Ronaldo can make something like this believable.
Nike owes a lot to Cristiano, and this other commercial saw the aged dressing room supervisor trying out CR7's Manchester United inner and display his great shooting skills at Old Trafford, United's fort. A flustered Ronaldo comes to the fore and gets his inner back. Skills get transferred through clothes, you know!
Reading does mean that you got a lot already, but wait till you watch the entire commercials that sent Ronaldo's fans into fits of laughter everytime they watch them!
