Fresh from winning the Champions League final for a second straight year, famed footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was highlighted in a new advertisement by Nike over the weekend. Now Ronaldo being glorified via the Swoosh is of course nothing new, but what a young Cristiano was wearing in the picture that was used — well — that’s what is a little interesting here.
As followers on social media have pointed out, in the original image a boyhood Ronaldo is actually pictured donning a crewneck from Nike’s closest competitor, adidas. So, it looks like the Swoosh simply cropped the photo as not to highlight the Three Stripes in their ad… A move that has some scratching their head.
We’ve yet to see Nike or adidas comment on the advertisement, but be sure to hit us with your thoughts on the intriguing choice of photo.
