Nike Football has released its latest film “The Switch,” which sees Cristiano Ronaldo switch bodies with an unsuspecting ballboy.

The incredible clip launches just prior to the Euro 2016 and kicks off with Ronnie playing in a match against England at Wembley Stadium. Portugal take the lead via one of his pinpoint crosses, but as he plays the ball, his momentum takes him over the advertising boardings, colliding into a teenage ballboy. Both of them are left dazed from the collision, and when they wake up the next day they realize that their lives will never quite be the same again.

For average school kid Charlie Lee it’s a dream come true as he drives around in flashy cars, trains with the Portugal squad and comes home to a sprawling multi-million dollar mansion. Cristiano, however, has to start from the bottom as Charlie’s friends and family are baffled by his new found football skills and ability to speak Portuguese.

It’s basically what happens when football meets Freaky Friday, and it’s brilliant. Watch the full film above.

Afterwards, you can see Nike Football’s animated effort launched back in 2014 for the FIFA World Cup below.

Bizarrely, Drake was spotted wearing a bright pink Juventus shirt yesterday. Here’s the possible reason why.
