Attack of the pitch invader

Pick-up games of football are pretty common Barcelona, where friends—and sometimes enemies—often meet up to kick the frustrations of the day away at one of the many five-a-side pitches strewn throughout the city. And for the launch of its new global campaign, Pepsi took this experience so familiar to everyone in the city and flipped it on its head by introducing a drone and a spectacular light show.

Impress a sullen football player

It's no secret that football has become a massive business enterprise, which relies on the appeal of handsomely paid sports stars to drive revenue. And while Cristano Ronaldo's abs and Neymar's consistently changing hairdos are successful at attracting interest from fans, Italian playmaker Andrea Pirlo has something that no other player has: a sullen face that seems incapable of being pleased. And in a move that shows it's possible to even capitalise on things conventionally considered undesirable, Pirlo's Turin-based club Juventus has now launched a campaign that encourages viewers to send in videos that might be able to impress the player.

Heat map shows how mad Twitter went during Brazil vs Germany match

Brazil's 7-1 hammering at the hands of the Nationalmannschaft has rendered all other conversations over the last 24 hours completely irrelevant. And in addition to hijacking all office-based conversations, the footballing debacle also took hold of Twitter, breaking a few records along the way. And, in an effort to give a graphic representation of how mad the online community went during the match, Twitter published an interactive map that shows how people throughout the world responded to the each goal being scored.

A shirt that moves while watching a footy game

In a new way of engaging sports fans, the Foxtel Alert Shirt lets wearers feel the footy game as its being played, creating fluttery movements when players are nervous, and a feeling of impact when they're struck. Does this mean we'll soon be able to feel Luis Suarez's bite for ourselves?

TVNZ throws ad-hoc carnival, aims to spread World Cup fever

In an effort to share the festivities with the Kiwis and expats who aren't fortunate enough to be in Brazil for the World Cup, TVNZ's Blacksand has set up an ad-hoc carnival in Auckland. Placing the seemingly innocuous duo of a mini-goal and a football alongside a 'kick me' sign, the Blacksand team waited out of sight, with their cameras ready, for any passersby to take the bait. Those who did kick the ball into the net were then caught off gaurd by an impromptu carnival made up of football players, samba dancers, capoeira performers and fans from all over the world.

Beats captivates with epic five-minute World Cup spot

A ball hasn't even been kicked yet, but this year's World Cup has already served up a fair amount of entertainment in terms of the ads that have come from major corporates. While Nike, Adidas and Puma have in the past been the trifecta of good sports advertising, other brands are also starting to intrude on this space by producing ads that are comparable if not better than those produced by the sports juggernauts.

Brazilian fast food chain's smartphone app converts a placemat into a mini football game

Using the unfortunate premise that dinnertime has become a sordid affair that often involves gobbling down a fast food meal while perusing the rectangular screen of a smartphone, Brazilian fast food chain Giraffas found an innovative way to tap into football fever ahead of the FIFA World Cup. The company commissioned the development of a football game app that converts the smartphone into an ad-hoc goal complete with a a goalkeeper. Once the app has been downloaded, the phone can be placed at the end of a football pitch-themed placemat, which comes with a perforated edge that can be torn off and crumpled into a crude ball.

Extreme football-related phubbing*

There's been a lot of talk about football rights in New Zealand recently, with online offering Coliseum unexpectedly snatching that trophy off Sky and Sky then raining on its parade slightly by signing deals directly with four English major clubs to show delayed coverage of their games. But as newspapers embrace video, and as humans embrace mobile, it's not just broadcasters looking for content anymore, as evidenced by this great ad for Sun+ Goals that features football fans watching when they shouldn't be.

Made-up number used to show benefits of World Cup 'victory', non-sponsors ambush e-chatter

After the stunning All Whites victory last night, which 593,800 Kiwis watched on TV One and 150,500 watched on Sky, FIFA's worst nightmare, a New Zealand vs South Africa final, is still on the cards. And while a range of lying geeks pull numbers out of the air in an attempt to quantify how much the "lost productivity" will cost the nation, stunning new research by StopPress reveals the victory has actually made the nation more than $45 million in terms of increased patriotism (text received after final whistle: "I am having kittens. I have died and gone to heaven. I love sports.") and vuvuzela sales. Anyway, everyone knows the result of the match (apparently we're part of Australasia now). But who's winning the World Cup brand wars?
