Axl Rose, Gary Cahill & Hulk Star In Budweiser's Greatest Show on Earth



Africa celebrates the rock-stars of the World Cup in new spot

Axl Rose, Gary Cahill & Hulk Star In Budweiser's Greatest Show on Earth

Budweiser, one of the world's most valued beer brands, and official sponsor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, transforms the highly anticipated tournament into what it actually is; the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’.

The campaign, created by international creative agency Africa, brings together two of the brand's main platforms: sports and music. Top soccer players transform into the rock stars of the World Cup, coming together with actual rock stars and fans worldwide to reverence the great performers of the event.

The film features famous soccer players Hulk (Brazil), Samuel Eto'o (Cameroon), Gary Cahill (England) and Maya Yoshida (Japan), in addition to special appearances from UFC’s star Anderson Silva and Axl Rose.

With the suitable soundtrack of Paradise City, by Guns n’ Roses, the film has a true rock star appeal. The shooting of took place in London and Uruguay in March and the production involved more than 700 contributors.
