It’s been an eventful few days for Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s been nominated for the Uefa Men’s Player of the Year again, there was outrage over his no-show in a Juventus pre-season friendly in Seoul. A fan traveled all the way to Sweden to confront him for not playing in the South Korean capital. Ronaldo’s lawyers are trying to push a lawsuit by a Nevada woman who alleges that he raped her, out of court and into a private settlement.
Ronaldo though found fresh reason to dominate chatter on social media when his advertisement of a South Asian shopping app named Shoppee went viral.
In the advertisement Ronaldo is seen scoring a goal and performing his trademark celebration in front of a crowd that show no reaction to his heroics.
As a surprised Ronaldo looks around to what has gone wrong, the stands are turn orange in a matter of flash and Ronaldo is shown a card that sports the logo of the shopping app.
He then opens the app on his mobile to see his own kit turn orange before breaking into a comical dance.
The fans of the Juventus star have been left surprised by the kind of theatrics Ronaldo has performed in the ad, leading to many astonishing reactions on Twitter. Here are a few.
