This is a Nike advertisement produced way back in 1997, but banned due to it being too similar to a scene from the movie Apocalypse Now.
Cantona first appears in a steamy Turkish bath Turkish bath and repeats the French Legionnaire’s oath of honour.
He says in French: “Legionnaire! You have volunteered to serve France with honour and fidelity.”
“Every Legionnaire is your brother and you owe him loyalty whatever his race or religion.”
In the final scene, Cantona strolls in with a towel around his waist before he whips it off and boldly heads for the shower butt-naked!
