make yourself…

This little Nike commercial comes to you via reader Jill and Mesut’s Facebook page.  All you need to know is that it features Mesut without a shirt, and has a very important message (which I do love a lot).

      Full Translation:

      You’ve come a long way.
      Before you used to kick with the boys
      Now you play professional football.
      In the first league.
      You play for your country.
      You play with the best in the world.
      For the biggest titles you could possibly win.
      “Didn’t think you’d be that good!”

      The only difference between this one and the other video is the final line. The translation of her final line is not literal, by the way.

      “Not bad, for a girl!”

      (The video makes fun of the fact that girls put up with that comment all the time).

    I can’t really put my finger on what I like the most about it.

    Hey, I just wanted you to know that there is a second video with Mesut and Lira here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD2m2vJL5Z8 It doesn’t feature shirtless Mesut, but I think it’d still be nice to add here, since it’s the ‘female’ version of it.

    Um … Wow! Our little bambi has grown up! :). It’s so funny how I found him so annoying during the WC last summer, and now I just love him!

    I am loving this video… Equally as great is the one made with Lira as the main character and the “Making of…” both found on YouTube. Thanks for posting Una! 😉

    What a great ad! Been loving Mesut for a while now and how great is that message (+the lack of shirt).

  17. May 27, 2011 05:32

    I just died. M-E-S-U-T. I never expected I can love you more.

    Bambi is looking good in this video. And I love the message too.

    pretty good commercial, if you’re on youtube already, watch Lira’s version too! Oezil scores in that one.

      Yeah, I watched the final too last night!
      It was really exciting, and it got me hyped about the Womens WC later this summer

      Chiming in to say I’m getting excited for Women’s World Cup now. The more I hear about the tournament, the more I’m dying for it to start!
