Nike has given everyone a chance to see the world in the eyes of FC Barcelona superstar and Brazilian national football team skipper, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior or simply known worldwide as Neymar. Just 23 years old yet already a football legend, onlookers the world over only dream to see the world in his eyes.

Nike has used the magical powers of Virtual Reality to give us a taste of what its like to be Neymar on the pitch. The exhilarating feeling of losing your defender and making a mad dash at goal. Then capping the run with a fabulous strike that sends the ball screaming through the net. Before we could only dream at that feeling but now you can watch it yourself thanks to Nike. This was used to advertise the new Hypervenom Phantom II shoes and aren’t we glad they didn’t go for a normal boring old commercial approach.
