Nike covered a soccer player's car in tin foil to promote Ronaldo's shoes

Thursday March 26th, 2015

Look at Cristiano Ronaldo. What a prankster! This is definitely a genuine moment of whimsy and not an advertisement for his new shoe.

Nike made Cristiano Ronaldo cleats covered in real diamonds

Ronaldo covered Portugal teammate Ricardo Quaresma's car in tin foil, and it just happens to look exactly like the new CR7 shoe from Nike. What a coincidence. 

Seriously @cristiano ?! My newly redesigned CR7 #Mercurial car on @nikefootball 's snapchat 😂😂

Hopefully Quaresma is getting a cut of the profits.
