Two more winners for Nikelab.com: In "Crab," two robotic scuttlers play soccer in what looks like an abandoned industrial zone. That's it, but it's plenty, since it combines machine-cool with just the right touch of geek. In "Minotaur," Falcons QB Michael Vick is the titular star, stomping a three-headed dragon in the street, in an homage to the retro stop-motion style of Ray Harryhausen. We give this spot two horns up.
