FIFA 20: “The Bunker” - 1 min 50s

Ever wondered how the Fifa video game franchise calculates player ratings? Some peeved stars do. Naturally, it takes place in a hi-tech facility beneath a football memorabilia shop called the Transfer Market, with players such as Jesse Lingard, Raheem Sterling, and João Félix pitted against a number-crunching supercomputer.

There's enough fancy footwork and gravity-defying scissor kicks to satisfy casual viewers, but hardcore fans may be too preoccupied with FIFA 20's 'broken' career mode to enjoy the spectacle. Such complaints have led to the game's dismal Metacritic rating - ironic given that the ad's soundtrack features Pusha T's 'Numbers on the Board'.
