In a bit of offbeat news, Nike has let us know that they’ve introduced a new feature titled ‘Straight Down the Middle’. The online spot features a lighthearted match between pro golfer Rory McIlroy and pro soccer (er, football) player Wayne Rooney. The match was put together as a celebration piece for the new ‘Ordem’ soccer ball (er, football), Nike’s latest and most advanced ball to date.
Over the course of their round, McIlroy and Rooney trade shots. Of course, Rory stripes his new Nike VRS Cover 2.0 Driver, and Wayne prefers to blast the new Ordem down the middle.
Brasilian football legend Ronaldo also makes an appearance. In the end, it’s a fun little piece worth checking out.
