Is It Called Soccer or Football?
TV Commercial Review
Heart or Humor
Peyton Manning and David Beckham star in Frito-Lay’s new FIFA World Cup commercial, “Soccer or Football?” Directed by legendary Hollywood filmmaker Michael Bay, the spot was created and produced by Frito-Lay’s internal creative agency.
“Soccer or Football” sets out to help settle the score on one of the sports’ oldest debates with the help of Beckham and Manning. The spot also features a series of cameos from soccer legends Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain, Javier “Chicharito” Hernández, Julie Foudy, and Tim Howard, who offer their take, reigniting the discussion amongst other soccer – or football – fans.
“I’ve had a great time working with the Frito-Lay team in the past and know how creative they can be, but this debate they’ve inspired takes things to a new level,” said Manning. “No matter what side of the football vs. soccer conversation people land on, hopefully, they are entertained!“
“It’s been great working with Frito-Lay and Peyton on this campaign and to appear alongside so many greats of the game,” said Beckham. “It was an amazing experience to be directed by someone with the track record and talent of Michael Bay, and we had a lot of fun.“
