Video: Anderson Silva's Nike commercial cameo with Brazilian national soccer team


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is making his Nike commercial debut.

Well, sort of.

"The Spider" makes a brief cameo in this Brazilian Nike commercial, which focuses on the Brazilian National Soccer team, mostly aimed at the young phenom, Neymar. Look closely, maybe even run it in slow motion or you might miss his part as his appearance is faster than Forrest Griffin running out of the cage after his loss to Anderson at UFC 101 (Sorry Forrest).

Last year, Anderson landed an endorsement deal with Nike -- one of the largest sports clothing and shoe apparel company in the world -- to complement his deal with Burger King.

Though not the main focus, it doesn't hurt Silva, whose an avid soccer fan, to be linked with one of the most dominant sports teams in the world and such a big sports icon that is Nike. He may one day get his very own time to shine with his own Nike ad, but for now, this will have to suffice.

Big baby steps.
