Sam and Ryan are the soccer experts of the crew. As for myself, I know soccer, but I don’t know soccer if that makes any sense.*

Nevertheless, like most people who fancy themselves as fútbol fans, World Cup 2014 fever is beginning to capture my mind, body and soul. With people traveling from across the globe to Brazil for the festivities this summer, Emirates Airlines placed their name in the hat with a new spot featuring Cristiano Ronaldo and Pelé. The clip highlights the company’s eye-popping Emirates A380 onboard lounge.

Not as funny as adidas’ Damian Lillard ad, but whenever a non-athletic brand lands two living legends in the same sport in one commercial, that’s saying something. Talk about throwing your weight around.

* – I was this close to titling it “Pelé And Cristiano Ronaldo Kick It In Emirates Airlines Commercial.” But that would’ve just come off corny.
