Nike advert reveals chilling truth behind football cloning program
World Cup Athlete’s Clones Are Getting Out Of Control
Nike’s most recent animated advert “The Last Game” painted a frightening picture of a sport overtaken by science’s perfectly engineered clones who are copies the world’s top players in every aspect, save their willingness to take risks for big plays.
Well, this got us thinking, if science could make clones of our favorite football athletes, how would Mother Nature approach the same task?
We’ve scoured the interwebs in search of these top athletes’ doubles and found plenty that are downright shocking, as well as a few laughably similar faces.
•Every football fan has heard of Christiano Ronaldo, but have you heard of his Turkish twin, Gökmen Akdo?an? The guy has his own Facebook fan page with side by side selfies that show just how similar the two are in appearance.
•Neymar has earned plenty of attention as a top-quality athlete, but did you know about his younger counter part, Neilton, who currently plays for Santos?
•Brazilian footballer David Luiz is known for his characteristic frizzy mop of a hairdo, come to find out, so is his clone, Brazilian footballer Davi Luis. This match is almost too close for comfort.
•US national team keeper Tim Howard could have a long lost twin in US radio personality Greg Matzek, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
•Bayern’s Franck Ribery has a thick set of eyebrows and sports an ever present goatee. Can anyone see his resemblance to US comedian Tom Green?
•How about Swedish and PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic and this fish? I’m not sure how effective he’ll be on the pitch, but that look in his eye tells me he’s up to no good.
We’re going to have to stop there because this is starting to get a bit ridiculous. But rest assured, these premier athletes aren’t going anywhere, at least not until this World Cup competition is over.
