Hyundai throws its hat in the Fifa World Cup Sponsorship ring with a couple spots featuring the hashtag-ready internet-speak tagline: Because Fútbol. I could see where this spot was going a mile away, and that's okay. However, I think they didn't even need to show the "nine months before," section, as it was pretty freaking obvious. I'll bet it was a client demand to show "smiling people sharing the ecstatic joy that is the World Cup, the world's game, how we all celebrate in unison," or some shit. Because clients.
