I just noticed it.

The Coca-Cola bottles in the fridge at the beginning of the video.

So they advertise MOVE & it's games with Coca-Cola also in it...

Advertisement inside an advertise.

sinncross2931d ago

Funny you mention the coke bottles.
Didn't Sony announce that they teamed up with Coca Cola for advertising?

Pretty clever way to get coke in there!

Commander_TK2931d ago

football, not soccer. Btw, another nail from Kevin Butler.

MaximusPrime2931d ago (Edited 2931d ago )

@Commander_TK:

only Americans call it Soccer. They got different form of sport called American Football.

Worldwide its football.

edit: forgotten about Australia. They have Australian Rule Football.

Hairy Chewie2931d ago

Australia does too. We mostly say soccer, if you say football you're going to have to clarify yourself around here. Mostly cause we already have 3 other kinds of football... so it gets confusing. I never understood why people get so up tight about calling "football" soccer?

Red_Orange_Juice2931d ago (Edited 2931d ago )

cos in most languages it's called football, fútbol, fußball, and people who use those languages don't use word soccer for anything, for them (and me) "soccer" is a strange alien-like word, I mean what doesn soccer even mean, how does soccer connect to a sports game with a ball, like baseball, basketball, volleyball

MaximusPrime2931d ago

The rules of football were codified in England by the Football Association in 1863 and the name association football was coined to distinguish the game from the other forms of football played at the time, specifically rugby football. The term soccer originated in England, first appearing in the 1880s as an Oxford "-er" abbreviation of the word "association".

Today the sport is known as football in English-speaking countries in which it is the most popular football code; where other codes are more popular, the sport is more commonly referred to as soccer. Non-English-speaking countries predominantly use a variation of football, such as Spanish fútbol, Portuguese futebol or German Fußball. In Italian, conversely, it is known as Calcio, after a 16th Century version of Football.

I can't believe that I actually saw this on TV last night before seeing it online. I loved this commercial! "You're Adopted!"

SprSynJn2931d ago

Japan also calls it soccer, so add that to the list.

MaximusPrime2931d ago

didnt know Japanese called it Soccer.

any more?

zootang2931d ago

Also football is primarily played with the foot, unlike most other football named sports.

sdtarm2931d ago

YOU ARE ADOPTED LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Oner2930d ago (Edited 2930d ago )

@ Zootand ~ So then basketball should be named Handball since it is played with the hands...sorry but that doesn't exactly work out...Plus as already explained the term Soccer came from England in the 1880's NOT AMERICA so to those who always blame us please stop.

Also I would say Soccer kind of fits...You wear socks on your feet! Soooo Soccer!

EDIT:

I can't wait Kevin Butler's Gran Turismo 5 video. XD

PirateThom2931d ago (Edited 2931d ago )

Man, see if KB was used in the UK....

The Stig driving around the Top Gear Test Track in the Merc SLS AMG, using all the Top Gear style filters.... then coming to a stop, gets out, takes of helmet and BAM! it's Kevin Butler, who just raises his eyebrows, knowingly.

PimpHandHappy2931d ago

might just be the coolest idea ever for a UK GT5 ad. Have a bubble

Cloudberry2931d ago

.
Anyone could submit the idea via PlayStation Blog, I think.

Hopefully, it could get realized, lol.

PirateThom2931d ago

I've submitted it, who knows?

It could be the first multi-region Kevin Butler advert!

Redempteur2931d ago

i don't know if the adopted part or the vuvuzela part is the most mean ...

PimpHandHappy2931d ago

the horns

KB is the best marketing idea ever created

Galvanise_2931d ago

They are Vuvuzelas.

See: The World Cup.

PimpHandHappy2931d ago

i love soccer and love the world cup.

but
THEY ARE STILL HORNS

dead_eye2931d ago

I'll give you the horns but it's called football.

PimpHandHappy2931d ago

not from were im sitting... My football consist of big men smashing into each other. :-)

Shadow Flare2931d ago (Edited 2931d ago )

Isn't American football a game which doesn't even use a round ball and is played with the hands?

Proper football is played with the foot. And with a ball.

shazui1232931d ago

@ shadow flare
On a related note, real football < real rugby ;)

PimpHandHappy2931d ago

does have a punter and kicker. They kick the ball :-)

anyway
stop hating on American football. Its a true team game and is great

Red_Orange_Juice2931d ago

I don't argue about rugby, rugby is cool I guess, it's a raw sport, you don't gear up like a puss in american football :P

fucadastates2931d ago

PimpHandHappy

I'm glad those vuvuzelas stayed in Africa, now it's actually enjoyable again to watch football.

Urrakia342931d ago

"you don't gear up like a puss in american football :P"

Ult iMate2930d ago

@ PimpHandHappy
"THEY ARE STILL HORNS"

Vuvuzellas are not just usual horns. They are horns from hell.

@PimpHandhappy Football was around before America was even America. The rest of the world know it as football.

Lolled! I Love these commercials.

I bet it doesn't do the family showdowns I'm used to. One summer dad dug a hole in the backyard about the size of a house, it was pretty big. He said we were getting a swimming pool, we didn't. Then he set a lawn chair around the edge and would pop the top on a silver bullet while my sister and I fought in the pit. And mom just stood there. Weapons allowed upon dads approval. The rules were that we couldn't stop fighting until dad finished his beer. Long days those were.

Once, sis got me in an ankle lock and snapped it, but I got her back when I shoved a brick in her mouth and stomped it down. A tough irish broad that one is, and we're not even irish, we're italian. At first it was hell, but as the years went by it became a game of who can break the most in the other person. Toughened us up and made us better people I'll tell you what. I moved out a few years back and the pit is gone.

It's a swimming pool now.
