In preparation for Egypt’s return to the FIFA World Cup, Etisalat has exploded onto the scene with the first World Cup anthem and ad bomb.
The telecommunications company released this advertising gem, complete with what all Egyptians seem to love. Catchy tunes, dramatic shots, Football, inside jokes and Egypt’s beloved goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary.
The entire ad is a great piece, but it is the timing and its great production that has us saying that it may be the leading brand for this year’s World Cup journey.
Other brands haven’t released any strong pushes for Egypt’s journey to Russia, but with players such as Vodafone and their new brand ambassador Mohamed Salah, we can’t be entirely sure what will come next.
One thing we do know, is that Etisalat didn’t come just to play but also to win!
