The Timbers Army (or something like them) tag along for the ride as well.
It's not every day that we get to associate our beloved Portland Timbers with one of our favorite soccer games outside the game itself. This certainly wasn't the case last year. However, for FIFA's newest title, FIFA 13, it appears EA has invested in showing off some of MLS's local talent. So far there are commercials for:
And of course the Portland Timbers.
They're being marketed as a "Soccer 101" sort of series which is probably being done to help lure more fans into the game somehow...
The funny thing, however, is that this ad doesn't really focus on either player in their element, but rather as surgeons. It's a bit of an odd connection, but it's also quite humorous to see the guys taking part in something as such.
I'm also interested in whether or not this ad gets air time or if it's just supposed to be a viral internet thing. My guess is the latter.
