Just like the build up to any FIFA World Cup, Quilmes releases a commercial supporting the Argentina National Team and this one encapsulates what many of us feel.
Starring World Cup winner Oscar RUGGERI, the Argentina legend takes on fans and their comments, some of which we hear far too often. With the commercial being in Spanish, I have translated it into English (taking into account some expressions used in Argentina). Here’s the commercial with the translation below:
Latest Quilmes commercial for the World Cup. They’ve done some great ones in the past but this one, this one… Speechless. Actually got emotional watching this. Se me llenan los ojos de lagrimas.pic.twitter.com/pHjlRxeOHJ

“Between the players and the fans, we have an old contract that states:
“We give our lives and they support us without stopping. But when there are doubts, you have to talk about it.”
Oscar RUGGERI: “What’s going on?”
Fan: “At times it looks as if they don’t want to come here!”
Fan: “They score 30 goals with their teams but here, nothing!”
Oscar RUGGERI: “Let’s go, what more?”
Fan: “I went in my Coupe Fuego (Renault car) to Rio to support them and it took four days…”
Oscar RUGGERI: “Well, you went because we were playing in the final, no?
Fan: “We have lost three finals!”
Oscar RUGGERI: “That’s true. Now, enough with the memes, please.”
Fan: “They’re funny.”
Oscar RUGGERI: “They’re aggressive, unfair.”
Fan: “We ask them to play with balls!”
Oscar RUGGERI: “Sometimes we ask much more than that. We ask them to brighten our lives, to cure us from a cold. We ask less from God.
“We’ve broken a lot of contracts, let’s not break this one. Let’s read it together.
“Gentlemen, I leave everything, I’m going to watch Argentina. Because the players will show me… that they’re going out to win. That they want to leave as champions. That they carry it inside of them, the way I carry it inside of me.”
