International soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo appeared in a new ad for Nike over the weekend, but the internet uncovered something that has many scratching their heads.
Posted on Instagram, the ad features a boyhood photo of Ronaldo (who is a lifetime Nike athlete), which is overlaid by a red Nike Swoosh and the statement: “THIS BOY KNEW.”
The internet soon uncovered the original image of Ronaldo… revealing that the crewneck sweater he’s wearing is actually by Nike’s biggest competitor, Adidas.
Ironic, isn’t it? It has many wondering why Nike would choose this photo over others.
As of press time, Nike or Adidas had yet to comment on the social ad, but the internet is going crazy.
