Adriana Lima Schools Athletes On 'Real' Football (VIDEO)

When Adriana Lima speaks, people listen.

In a World Cup ad for Kia, the Brazilian model interrupts American football practice by driving on the field. But nobody seems to mind.

"In my country, this is football," she says, flaunting a soccer ball.

Lesson learned, guys?

America's perceived indifference to soccer always makes for good joke material around the World Cup. But you know what would really be a hoot? If the U.S. team surprised naysayers and advanced from the "Group of Death."

Who'd be laughing then?
