Portland Timbers get cinematic in ads

September, 15, 2012
It's no secret Major League Soccer club the Portland Timbers appreciates its fans, with a full video campaign earlier this year launched to celebrate the Timbers Army and all of this Pacific Northwest outfit's supporters.

Now Portland's got another video series, initially shown to 2012 season-ticket holders as part of the club's renewal campaign, and later shared publicly across the team's digital channels. Under the heading "RCTID" (Rose City 'Til I Die), it dramatizes a day in the life around Timbers FC, with each of the five clips a cinematic snippet featuring supporters -- and, in one case, player Darlington Nagbe.

Check them all out, plus a two-plus-minute "anthem" featuring all the video stars:
