Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil performed a brilliant chewing gum trick for a new Adidas advert released earlier this week - but we reckon this follow-up ad featuring Chelsea’s Oscar is even more impressive.
The Brazil international takes a corner and aims for the crossbar before running into the box and finishing the move with a cheeky touch off his left foot.
Both videos have almost certainly been edited - they would have taken a million attempts, and quite possibly even more, otherwise - but they’re entertaining nevertheless. (Scroll down to watch Oscar’s Adidas advert).

Unlike Ozil, it’s not been a particularly good season for Oscar.
However, the 24-year-old’s form has improved since Guus Hiddink replaced Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge last month.

Oscar's form improving under Hiddink
Before the 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on December 14 (Mourinho’s final match in charge of the Blues) Oscar had scored just one Premier League goal and had failed to register a single assist.
But in six league appearances under Hiddink, Oscar had scored twice and set up two more goals.
Should Chelsea sell Oscar this summer?
The South American has not developed at the rate Chelsea probably expected after they paid Internacional £25 million for his services in July 2012.
And unless he becomes more consistent and more productive in terms of goals and assists, it wouldn’t be a shock if Chelsea allow the player to leave west London at the end of the season.
Italian champions Juventus are the club that have been linked strongly with Oscar over the past year or so.
