Nike Soccer Releases Ad-Infused Video Widget

Eyeblaster, AKQA and Mindblaster put their wands together to create a video widget for Nike Football Soccer. It spans 10 countries and is supposedly one of the largest video widget campaigns EVAR. (The PR guy called it "revolutionizing.")

See widget here. Basically it streams a selection of Nike ads: watch 'em one after the other, or browse from a playlist. There are also embed options for social networks.

I'm not convinced anyone wants a video widget pre-loaded with Nike soccer spots, but given that it starts with "The Next Level" by Guy Ritchie -- which makes my brain throb -- I'm glad it default-launches on mute. Way to go, Eyeblaster.

But really, the idea behind widget technology is engaging people without them having to leave the website they're on. AKQA, couldn't you have snuck in a soccer game or some shoe-customizing awesomeness?
