Germany’s national football team released this funny and inventive ad that takes on the issue sexism in the sport ahead of this years Women’s World Cup.
In the ad, we’re spoken to directly by some of the stars of the squad. We’re told that we probably don’t even know their names. We’re told that in the country that they’re playing for, most people don’t know their names. That’s all despite the fact that they’ve been European champions eight times and have won the World Cup twice! Even though they’re one of the most dominant teams in the game, they still struggle to attract the same attention as the men’s side.
In this video, we see the team flip all the stereotypes about women on their head. The “makeup” they wear on their faces is splattered mud on the pitch. The “high heels” they wear are studded football boots. And their knee-high socks aren’t for fashion, they cover up chunky shin pads! It’s a really clever ad that takes on the issue of sexism in football in a cheeky and funny way.
