Paolo Rossi Haunts 1982 Demolition of Brazil In World Cup TV Commercial [VIDEO]
Paolo Rossi stars in a creative new World Cup TV commercial.
After getting a shave in a barber shop in Brazil, Rossi tries to pay with a credit card. It’s only then that the Brazilian barber realizes that it’s the Paolo Rossi, and he has flashbacks to that famous game between Italy and Brazil in the 1982 World Cup where one of the greatest Brazilian teams ever were undone by Rossi when he scored a hat trick to win the match 3-2 and send Brazil home.
Hats off to Visa for a very well produced TV commercial.
