Oh, the pageantry. Sia donates her considerable pipes to this new Olympics-themed Gillette ad, which ramps up the angst to such an extent that we’re not quite clear what everyone’s so upset about.

Featuring the likes of Neymar Jr. and Ning Zetao — who is inexplicably doused in slo-motion, like a food-styled tomato in an Olive Garden commercial — the end result looks like David Fincher might’ve directed, albeit on a sugar low.

It’s all quite irretrievably hardcore.

Watch the lavish, lengthy commercial here:
