FTF Video: McIlroy & Rooney 'Tee' It Up For Nike

What do you get when you combine Rory McIlroy, Wayne Rooney, a game of golf, a Bing Crosby classic and a cameo from the original Ronaldo?

The answer is a great new ad from Nike. Mind you, we shouldn't expect anything less from the madcap marketing folks at Nike should we?

Their latest endeavour pits none other than former world number one golfer and latest mulit-millionaire in the Nike stable, Rory McIlroy, against England international footballer (soccer - for those so inclined) Wayne Rooney.

The term 'he's like a magician on the golf course' has been used for some of the great shotmakers like Seve Ballesteros, Phil Mickelson and of course Tiger Woods.

And let's face it, at some point or other just about every professional golfer out there has some pretty neat tricks up their sleeves when it comes to getting out of trouble or saving a par from a situation that most of the rest of us would be building into at least a 'snowman' ....or worse.

The PGA Tour has used the motto 'These Guys Are Good' for a few years now with very good reason, and the European Tour does a great job of promoting the quality of the players on its tour with some extremely well produced videos. This one is no exception.

We're sorry.

We realize that seeing a guy taking a shot to the groin is one of the oldest and basest forms of humour....and is only funny when it happens to somebody else.

Which is precisely why we are showing this one.
