Durex Urges Soccer Players To Stop Faking It

We've seen some pretty ridiculous flops during the first round of the World Cup. But a new Durex ad urges us to quit the fake performances in another arena: the bedroom.

Of course the "flop" in soccer is a notorious technique in which a player overreacts to contact from opposing players in order to get a penalty called against the other team. The tongue-in-cheek ad depicts soccer players dramatizing nonexistent fouls as if they were career-ending injuries and ends with the condom maker telling viewers "#dontfakeit."

Durex clearly knows that if there are two things that truly unite the world, it's sex and soccer.
