Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been on Twitter all day as part of a Nike initiative on the #DareToZlatan hashtag, basically playing up to the stereotype of supreme confidence and third-person musings.

It's been fun, but after a day of it, some users on the social network sound as if they're beginning to get tired of the shtick:

Zlatan - it's all jumping the shark a bit. He's gone from cult hero, growing acceptance of quality, to saturation and now 'too much'.

I'm fairly sure Chuck Norris jokes were #DaringToZlatan all over the internet in c.2004.

Mind you, not everyone has grown weary of Zlatan. Here's former CNN host Piers Morgan getting right behind the fun:

The @Ibra_official account right now is the greatest, funniest, most inspiring tweet session in history. We should all #DareToZlatan

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 10, 2014

You need to follow me @Ibra_official - you lack confidence at the moment. I can help with that. #DareToPiers

Who is right? Should we all be daring to Zlatan, or is it time to take the rest of the afternoon off?
