Watch: ‘Magic Soccer Night’ Transforms Old Men Into Young

By  · Published on June 18th, 2012

Why Watch? This playful Nike commercial from writer/director Paul Wie does a fantastical/fantastic job of chugging home-brewed nostalgia and reminding us about the power of sports. Plus, it’s the rare kind of commercial that really tells a story.

In it, a group of old men sneak onto a soccer field at night and get carried away. Wie and editor Peter Yun do an especially strong job of cutting between the sore-hipped reality and the invincible world of youth.

What will it cost? Only 1 minute.
