Fran-Soul – #WinnerTakesEarth
This has to be one of the most intriguing advertisements the world has seen in a long time. The mysterious figures are making their way across the world and be alert cause they might be in a town near you.
The first citing of these figures was at the Sugarloaf Mountain and residents of Rio de Janeiro were left bemused by the appearance of a series of unidentified signs and circles. Immediately journalists were aware that this had something to do with the forthcoming World Cup. The unusual scene also prompted passing drivers to reduce their speed and residents to flock to the edge of the oceanic Guanabara Bay. It was not long before the discussion spread to Twitter where grainy photographs were posted.
And the illuminations of these mysterious figures did not stop there, it has been reported that there haven 3 stadiums that have been invaded between the 26th and 27th October. These are; Allianz Arena, Stamford Bridge and Juventus Stadium.
Even if these shenanigans seem entirely fictitious, what if there are some aliens out there that are planning to invade the Earth and the only way to defend the Earth is to engage these goddamn aliens in a football match in a winner-takes-all competition?
