Just do it!! The picture was the product of a three-hour photoshoot by an unnamed photographer and was the brainchild jointly of Nike executives and their advertising agency Wieden and Kennedy. Drenched in blood-red paint and screaming a war-cry, this chilling image of Wayne Rooney in England's 2006 World Cup campaign was condemned as 'offensive', 'exploitative' and 'tacky' by MPs and church groups (as it was considered to be a deliberate echo of Christ's crucifixion) though according to Nike it was nothing more than the England flag...
