Video: Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez is the Poster Boy For New Adidas Campaign

James Rodriguez is currently starring for his native Colombia at the Copa America.

But the Real Madrid star is also fronting another campaign around the world.

The 24-year-old playmaker is the new poster boy for the latest commercial released by Adidas.

And the new advert goes to show that the Bernabeu attacker can do just about anything, from playing musical instruments to directing traffic.

This video – which adopts the slogan ‘First Never Follows’ – shows some of Rodriguez’s finest moments for the Colombian national side, including highlights from his remarkable World Cup performance in 2014.

Bizarrely, the Madrid forward can even be seen playing a guitar for some strange reason during the clip.

You can check it out in the video below.

Rodriguez has helped guide Colombia into the semi-finals at the Copa America after they beat Peru in a dramatic penalty shootout on Friday night.

Their progression to the final four was largely down to Rodriguez’s team-mate – and brother-in-law – David Ospina, who made the deciding save.

They will now face either Chile or Mexico for a place in the final.
