Nike continues its World Cup campaign with an animated short film starring their roster of current soccer superstars as well as Brazilian great Ronaldo.

In the film, the players are replaced by clones who rely entirely on logic to play the game, removing all the excitement and driving away fans until Ronaldo rounds up the crew, including Zlatan Ibrahimović, Neymar, Andrès Iniesta, and more, from their new jobs to compete in a Space Jam-style "Last Game" in which the losers are forced to quit the sport forever.

Be sure to keep an eye out for a brief animated cameo from LeBron James and his Perfect Clone, as well. [Nike]
