Nike Turns Andres Iniesta Into A Marionette Puppet In Latest Ad

The Barcelona star is one of football’s most flexible players, making him the inspiration for Nike’s new puppet ad campaign.

Ahead of the start of Clasico with Real Madrid, Nike released a video with Andres Iniesta highlighting the new CTR360 Maestri III soccer cleats. A clever video shows the FC Barcelona midfielder as he expertly pulls the strings of a puppet, dictating the pace of the game as a tiny figure on a miniature football field. He’s displaying some fancy foot work and dominating the midfield while dodging opposing team members until he faces his final obstacle – the goalkeeper of course.

Watch the spot below to see the surprising ending.
