[dropcap]S[/dropcap]occer is quickly becoming one of the more popular sports in the United States of America. In other parts of the world, soccer is known basically as, “football.” Despite the differences, for as much as soccer is growing in this country, our version of football is beginning to catch on in other parts of the world, even in the soccer hotbed that is Brazil.

Apparently Brazil is doing its best to have our most popular sport catch on with its residents, and they did that fantastically in an ad that they’re currently running, which you can take a look at below:

The Vitória All Saints of the Superliga Nordeste de Futebol Americano a Brazilian American Football club are featured.

Kudos to whomever put this together because for anyone in Brazil that didn’t understand our version of football, that pretty much summed it up wonderfully for everyone watching that.

The sport of American football does continue to make its waves throughout the globe, which is evidenced by the fact that the number of games being played overseas in London continues to grow and prosper.

Could the league soon be taking a trip to South America? More commercials like these might almost make it a necessity.
