Turkish Airlines thought of a pretty dope campaign to promote their flights going to more countries than ever now. They got Kobe Bryant and soccer star Lionell Messi to have a “selfie battle” all over the world with their phones. It gets pretty intense. Check out the full commercial below…
This has got to be one of the funniest short films out online right now. It’s called “An American Coach in London” documenting an American football coach going to coach soccer in London. Obviously he doesn’t know the difference in rules so that’s what the funniest part is. Starring Jason Sudeikis.
Not a huge, huge soccer fan myself, but you better believe I got love for David Beckham. He sent off an emotional goodbye and received a standing ovation as he left the field last Saturday, having been involved in two of his team’s goals in a 3-1 win. After Beckham wasn’t placed on the roster for the next game, it became apparent that he was finally retiring from soccer.
Here’s how you make a very successful commercial. You get two of the best athlete’s in the world, add a little bit of humor, then make them look worthless in the end with some ice cream. Turkish Airlines really nailed it with this one.
BETC Paris just put out this new commercial for soccer fans and it has to be one of the funniest things we’ve ever seen. You’ll get the concept…hopefully.
Not sure how we missed this yesterday, but some are calling this the best goal of all time.
People really take their soccer seriously in Iran. They even go as far as throwing grenades onto the field when something doesn’t go right. Watch as this soccer player saves a bunch of lives by tossing the grenade to the sidelines before it explodes.

So now that Usian Bolt has dominated the sport of track and field, it’s time for him to move onto something new. He was interview by the Sun recently and asked whether or not he would like to play soccer some day. He not only answered the question but was very serious about possibly playing for Man-U. Here’s what Bolt had to say…
“People think I am joking,” he said, “but if [Man U manager] Alex Ferguson called me up and said, ‘OK, let’s do this, come and have a trial,’ it would be impossible for me to say no. I would not take up the challenge if I didn’t think I was good enough. I am a very accomplished player and know I could make a difference.”
“Manchester United Ltd. (MANU) (MANU), the English soccer team with a record 19 national championships, plans to raise as much as $333 million in a U.S. initial public offering.”
“The company and its selling shareholder, the Glazer family, are offering 16.7 million shares at $16 to $20 each, according to a regulatory filing today. United, whose players include England’s striker Wayne Rooney and Welshman Ryan Giggs, filed for the U.S. IPO July 3.”
