Nike is to pay tribute to the soccer player Ronaldo on his farewell a friendly between Brazil’s national squad and Romania. Created by F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi, the clip Before and After depicts how the player split the world of football into two eras: before Ronaldo and after Ronaldo. In the 60”clip, we see the differentials of the Phenomenon, including his rapid-style play and technique, which influenced thousands of new players and fans alike, and gave Brazilian football unprecedented visibility. The airing accompanies the hashtag #prasemprefenomeno (phonemenaforever), created early this year when Ronaldo announced his retirement. The hashtag was a hit at the time, reaching first place in the Trend Topics Brasil within just hours, and topping the world Trend Topics minutes later, following the player’s official announcement.
