Dubbed Awaken the Phantom, Nike Football’s new vignette stars Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Mal Pugh, Ronaldinho, Wizkid, Andrea Pirlo, Gennaro Gattuso and others. For the soundtrack, a mashup of Genesis and Justice’s “Heavy Metal” is utilized. The short film comes to us courtesy of director Matthew Vaughn, and is shared to tell the “story of a mysterious player” who transforms into an “urban legend of terrifying proportions” through “word of mouth.”
