Nike World Cup Commercial: WATCH 'Write The Future' Soccer Ad (VIDEOS)

A new Nike World Cup commercial has soccer fans buzzing today, as well as advertising and film professionals. And it already has a million YouTube views and counting.

Dubbed "Write The Future," the ad is three minutes long. It contains seamless transitions, a trip around the world, and cameos from Kobe Bryant, Roger Federer and Homer Simpson.

The commercial is composed by writer-director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, who is often praised for his ability to weave multiple seemingly unrelated storylines into a larger theme.
