Mario Balotelli goes to the Barber

The newest installment of Nike’s ‘My Time is Now’ advertisement campaign has arrived. The short features Mario Balotelli in an English barbershop. The Manchester City striker sits down for a haircut and is given several trims influenced by the strange styles of previous football players such as Ronaldo, Carlos Valderrama, and Chris Waddle. Finally satisfied with a simple mohawk, Balotelli begins to leave the shop but on his way out is pushed by Mamadou Sakho, also sporting a mohawk, who sneers “See you on the pitch.”

Javier Pastore also appears in the ad. The short finishes with a link to a Facebook app which allows the viewer to get their own unique haircut. Submit a photo of yourself edited with one of the 10 footballer’s hairstyles and you could win a trip and trim at a real Nike Barbershops currently in Paris, Madrid, and Milan.

Nike is also opening a pop-up barber shop in Warsaw for the Euro 2012 Champion’s League finals.
