New Nike Cricket Ad

Nike has come up with a new cricket ad which truly captures the essence of cricket in the Indian subcontinent. The background setting is a chaotic traffic jam in a place which looks like Mumbai. A bus carrying cricketers get stuck in the jam and out of the love for game a couple of them climb up the roof of the bus and start playing. Just like in any gully cricket or phatta match in India people start pitching and the team grows. But wait, the best hasn't come yet - yes, the best part of the ad is it's background music. It sounds so fit for the ad that you will start humming it even though you might not make any sense out of it!

Have fun:

What a wonderful world!

Louis Armstrong sang a truly beautiful song - What a wonderful world. The beauty of the song lies in it's lyrics as well as the way it has been sung. A true masterpiece, it makes you feel good and happy :).

The video of the song is available at the end of the post. Parts of the video belong to the movie - Good Morning Vietnam.

If you wish to sing along the lyrics goes as follow -

I see trees of green........ red roses too
I see 'em bloom..... for me and you
And I think to myself....what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue.....n clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
Theyre really sayin......i love you.

I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
Theyll learn much more.....n I'll never know
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.
