Star midfielder Andrés Iniesta’s marionette plays like the real Iniesta

Have you ever seen a marionette playing football? No? Well, here’s your chance to see one. This marionette is not ordinary, it is inspired by a FC Barcelona’s star midfielder Andrés Iniesta, who is on a rise and shine these days. The puppet was actually a part of the Nike ad campaign and featured his puppet as well as Iniesta himself. Goal was to promote “CTR360 Maestri III boot.”

The puppet performs really well on the set just like the real Andrés Iniesta. The marionette midfielder goes through the rival team with style and covers whole puppet stage while running. Credit for this sporty and unique creation goes to animation wizards at Aardman, Wieden + Kennedy London and Patrick Boivin (director from Montreal). In the end of the commercial, the star shows up to remind us of his real fire ball kick.

CTR360 Maestri III boot carries comfort, enhanced control, grip and a lightweight form. It features a new technology called All Conditions Control (ACC), which provides same control in wet as well as dry conditions. Below is a video where you can witness Andrés Iniesta’s puppet playing sheer delightful football.
