In the tradition of Freaky Friday and that one episode of TaleSpin, Nike Football premiered The Switch today, a new short film starring Cristiano Ronaldo that centers on the age-old “body swap” trope.
The spot starts out during a Portugal national team match, with Ronaldo going all out to set up the play and crashing into the stands — and one young kid — in the aftermath. That’s of course where things go awry, as
Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan Baloo and Kit Ronaldo and a young spectator make the switch, with the superstar soccer player inhabiting the teenager’s body and vice versa.
From there, it’s the standard defying of expectations, as an average city kid suddenly has the skills of the world’s best, while Ronaldo … seems to keep his skills, actually. Not sure. Watch the whole thing below, let me know.
