French professional footballer Kylian Mbappé stars alongside 10-year-old standout Makena Cook in Nike Football‘s new ad campaign, The Bet. The video arrives as Mbappé’s Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain recently signed its biggest sponsorship in club history with Nike.
In Nike Football’s The Bet, “The Champ,” Mbappé, and “The Kid,” Cook, take part in a crossbar challenge, as the winner gets Nike’s all-new Mercurial Superfly 360 boot. Makena steps up first to nail the crossbar and put the pressure on her opponent, Kylian. The 20-year-old football sensation then fails to hit the crossbar on his attempt, leaving Cook with the winning prize, the Mercurial Superfly 360.
Prior to starring in The Bet, Makena Cook appeared in Nike’s Dream Further short film celebrating women’s soccer.
