Clint Dempsey wants you to celebrate your FIFA 14 goals

Clint Dempsey wants you to celebrate the goals you score in FIFA 14 in style. In an ad for GameStop and FIFA 14, Dempsey criticizes some guy's rather tame celebration after scoring a goal. Dempsey demands better. 

The whole idea of pre-order bonuses have been widely criticized around the video game world, but at least this one for FIFA 14 – goal celebrations – doesn't give the player some sort of competitive advantage. Want to throw in the ability to do the robot if I order the game early? Go for it. No one is going to mind if my player dances better than their player. 

It's also nice seeing FIFA 14 and GameStop use an American soccer player in their advertisement. The odds of that happening years ago were slim to none. Other foreign soccer stars still have a higher profile, but the decision to use Dempsey shows that American soccer is gaining ground.
