World Cup bans Beats by Dre headphones
JUN 17, 2014 4:54p ET
Two weeks ago, Beats by Dre released a star-studded, five-minute video that served as both a commercial and World Cup tuneup.
The spot went viral and as of this writing has more than 11,000,000 views on YouTube.
Well, despite the fact that Neymar, Jozy Altidore, Luis Suarez and other soccer stars appear in the video, they will not be wearing their Beats by Dre during the World Cup.
Because of FIFA's licensing deal with Sony, players cannot wear the Beats by Dre headphones in stadiums when they are at Cup matches or media events.
On the bright side, Sony gave all players a free set of headphones.
