ESPN Stoke World Cup Excitement, National Pride with ‘I Believe’

ESPN has  just unveiled their latest FIFA World Cup 2014 spot, raising excitement for the event with just about 2 months left until it kicks off in Brazil on June 12th.

Entitled “I Believe,” the 60-second spot attempts to pump up Americans for the event, which has gained popularity nationally in recent years. Shots of Team USA in action and crowd footage are accompanied by a chant of “I believe that we can win.” Given the odds against the American squad, “I believe that we can make it past group stage” seems a bit more realistic.

Update: We’re told that, despite their normal involvement with ESPN, W+K did not have anything to do with the above spot.
