Nike had a huge advertising success at the 2010 World Cup with "Write the Future," the epic soccer spot that won the 2011 Film Grand Prix at Cannes for Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam. (It didn't work out so well for the players in the spot, though, many of whom failed notably at the tournament—fueling fears of a "Write the Future" curse.) Now, Wieden + Kennedy London takes over for Amsterdam with a sequel of sorts called "My Time Is Now," which is, in its own way, just as epic as the original.

The theme this time is the hunger of youth, with up-and-coming players like Brazil's Neymar, France's Yann M'Vila and Germany's Mario Götze storming a field—followed by hundreds of others—to compete against established stars like France's Franck Ribéry, Holland's Wesley Sneijder and, of course, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo.
