With the first game of the World Cup starting on Thursday, Americans are starting to remember what soccer is.

Kia, which happens to be an official World Cup partner, decided to use a beautiful Brazilian to jog the memories of American men everywhere.

The commercial stars Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, who interrupts a group of men playing American football. She emerges from a Kia, places a soccer ball on the ground and says, “In my country, this is football.”

She then kicks the ball directly at the chest of one of the slack-jawed men. The commercial ends with the text, “For one month, let’s all be futbol fans.”

If anyone can get Americans interested in soccer, it’s probably a supermodel.
