Beats gives iPhone 5s prominent placement in World Cup star-packed ad

Beats iPhone 5s World Cup Ad

Beats has released a new promotional video ahead of this year’s World Cup edition that will soon kick off in Brazil, featuring many stars, including many well-known players that will compete at the event. Among the stars making an appearance in the video, Beats has given Apple’s iPhone 5s top placement in the 5-minute video, with the handset being Neymar’s weapon of choice in his pre-game chat with his father, and being shown multiple times during the short video.

The Brazilian footballer, a key player in the country’s team, uses an iPhone 5s and Beats phones to talk to his father, and listen to music before the big game.

In addition to Neymar, other international football players who can be easily recognized appear in many instances of the clip, all preparing for a game while listening to music on Beats headphones. In case you didn’t recognize all of them, here are the footballers starring in the ad: Bacary Sagna, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Blaise Matuidi, Cesc Fàbregas, Daniel Sturridge, Chicharito, Jozy Altidore, Luis Suárez, Mario Götze, and Robin van Persie.

Additionally, Beats notes several special appearances, including LeBron James, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Rafaella Beckran, Rio Ferdinand, Serena Williams, Sydney Leroux, Stuart Scott, and Thierry Henry.

Interestingly, of all these people appearing in Beats’ new ad, at least two of them also appear in ads from a competing company – now that Beats will be part of Apple – including LeBron and Mario Götze, who both help Samsung promote their Galaxy devices.

The full Beats video, which has reached almost 1 million hits on YouTube, follows below.

Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
