It's Not Just Oil. It's Liquid Engineering.

I bet most of you must've seen the Castrol commercial lately on TV which features Cristiano Ronaldo.

If you still haven't seen it yet, well, just switch to ESPN or Star Sports and wait patiently for the commercial to pop out. Or you can watch it here.





According to Castrol's official website, they said: "Ronaldo will be the face of Castrol football initiatives that will show the energy, motivation and determination that goes into delivering winning performances on the pitch. Cristiano will lead new Castrol Edge and Castrol Power 1 brand communication campaigns as well as supporting the full Castrol product range, including the exclusive workshop range of Castrol Professional products."

Ronaldo commented, "I admire Castrol as they have the same commitment to success and winning performances as I do on the field. I’m honoured to be working with them and am excited to see how Castrol analyse my own performances!"

Sounds like a big achievement. Well, it is actually. But sadly, people tend to make fun with his accent. Not just that, even the quotes from the advertisement sounds funny.

"Football takes me to many places. Hot places. Cold places."

And suddenly, Cristiano Ronaldo has been made the latest laughing stock by Abdullah Wafi.

We all know Ronaldo lives an extravagant lifestyle, but his upbringing since childhood isn't all that pleasant.

Ronaldo is born on the Island of Madeira, but moved to Sporting Lisbon at 12 years of age. The move was difficult because many of his teammates made fun of his Madeiran accent.

Heck, I don't even know if there's a difference in accent. Everything sounds Portuguese to me anyway.

An article said: "Ronaldo had been well-behaved, fun and a good friend to his classmates, but there are no such glowing descriptions offered at the Escola Barreiros in Lisbon. Cristiano’s heavy Portuguese accent set him apart from the other lads, who would tease him. On one occasion he even threatened to launch a chair at a teacher for a perceived slur on his Madeira heritage."

So don't play play.

No matter how tough you are, I bet NONE of you guys have the guts to throw a chair at your teacher.

So do I. :)
