Ronaldo Joins Earth’s Ultimate Football Team: #GALAXY11

January 4th, 2014

Week by week, Samsung Mobile has unveiled their draft picks for the best 11 soccer players worldwide (that’s football, for our international friends), who unite with the electronics giant to form the ultimate Galaxy 11 team. The global campaign from R/GA follows the recruitment and training of the players as they prepare for an epic showdown to save the world from alien domination.

Saving the best for last, legendary Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo was announced with a cinematic :60 spot directed by Caviar Content’s Reynald Gresset and edited by jumP’s Richard Cooperman out of their LA studio.  Watch as an epic contest of wills unfold between one of the world’s greatest players and a high school girl’s volleyball team, as they rally to the strains of a massive anthem. Cooperman heightens the drama leading up to Ronaldo’s exit, presumably off to join his teammates in a far larger battle for the survival of planet Earth.
