ESPN’s New 2014 World Cup ‘Time Zones’ Commercial Is Brilliant (Video)

Over the last few months, viewers have been treated to a number of great commercials to get them fired up for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

With the first game less than three weeks away, ESPN has followed suit by releasing an awesome ad that focuses on the dedication of the international soccer fan.

The minute-long spot takes us around the world, as fans do whatever it takes to catch their favorite team in action, no matter what time of day they are playing. The slogan for the ad: “Every 4 Years, The World Has One Time Zone.”

Fortunately for fans of the Red, White and Blue, much of Brazil is only one or two hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time in the United States, meaning that U.S. fans won’t have to sneak past their sleeping mothers in the middle of the night or get up extra early in the morning to watch their native team play.

The U.S. kicks off a difficult slate of games in Group G  on June 16 with a matchup against Ghana at 6 p.m., EST.
