Now this is cool – Nikeâ€™s latest advert features a playable Sonic the Hedgehog mini-game set in the iconic Green Hill Zone.
Towards the end of the advert a billboard appears on screen featuring a red and white football boot along with the words â€˜Sonic X Vaporâ€™. Click on this and the mini-game instantly appears.
Itâ€™s an endless runner â€“ like those found on the App Store â€“ in which you have to prevent Sonic coming to any harm for as long as you can. Sonic has been kitted out with a pair of Nikeâ€™s latest footwear and can also punt a football along the screen to take out rows of baddies in one go.
The music should be familiar to Sonic fans. We’re not quite sure why they didnâ€™t just stick with the Green Hill Zone music though.
Nike’s advert has currently been viewed a staggering 113,555,342 times.
We wonder how many of those viewers have missed out on this brilliantly hidden extra?
Is that music from Sonic 4 Episode I? Oh dear.
Those trainers are pretty identical to Tails’ actual shoes, but perhaps that’d be too obtuse a reference for the people Nike are aiming at.
Best since Sonic 2!
