Spoiler Alert: Much Hopes → Much Green Screen → Kinda Disappointing.
International football mega-superstar Cristiano Ronaldo recently shared his campaign video for Egyptian Steel. In it, Ronaldo is seen doing your average Egyptian activities like riding a horse in front of the Giza pyramids and enjoying other Cairo landmarks (grinning from ear to ear the entire time of course). All the while, as he gallivants across Egypt, enjoying the sites, he's bringing a smile to children of all ages, including even newborns - because clearly you are never too young to be smitten with Ronaldo's genetically blessed face. At the end of the ad he says something about masreyeen and 7adid which we still can't quite decipher.
Disappointingly enough though, as it turns out Ronaldo was not actually filmed in those places, but in fact in front of a green screen and was added into the video during post-production. Sadness ensues.
The video comes after Ronaldo’s family recently visited Egypt’s many landmarks including Sharm El Sheikh’s newly opened Albatros Aqua Park, which is the biggest of its kind in the Middle East.
