Nike's version of the Madden Curse

I don't know if you saw the 3 minute commercial that Nike debuted before the World Cup (why they created a 3 minute commercial I'm not sure), but it seems that it helped seal the fate for many of the star players in it. The video, called "Write The Future," featured international soccer stars such as Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Wayne Rooney, among others. Now, as the World Cup continues on to the Quarterfinals, it seems that none of these players are actually left in the tournament (Ronaldinho didn't even make it to South Africa)! Below I've included the original, kick-ass video (which costs about $30 million to big deal or anything) as well as a funny fan video that outlines this phenomenon. John Madden would be proud.

Props to Jeff Klein for pointing out this situation, but I felt it too good not to share.
