Cristiano Ronaldo stars in a new six-minute Nike ad ahead of Euro 2016.

Ronaldo goes into the stands and switches bodies with a young fan in the front row. The two players proceed to spend several days in the opposite person's life much like the film “Freaky Friday.”

The ad, which is titled “The Switch,” also includes a cameo by England's Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Joe Hart and U.S. women's national team's Megan Rapinoe.

Ronaldo and a film crew took five days to film the commercial, according to Adweek.
