Rio looks on as Roo gets merked

Nike have struck viral gold after Wayne Rooney was nutmegged during a shoot for their new Nike Five initiative. The sports brand are hunting for the deadliest five-a-side team in the land and had got Rooney and Rio Ferdinand together with a group of youngsters to launch the campaign.

The advert took an unexpected twist in narrative after an amateur cameraman at the shoot caught Rooney getting nutmegged on his mobile phone footage. Rio was visibly delighted at the incident!

    Well, these are interesting thoughts. I think they are true. However, everything is
    relative and ambiguous to my mind.
