The 2018/19 Premier League season is just round the corner and British broadcaster BT Sport has launched a promo video to get fans hyped for the new campaign in which a schoolgirl nonchalantly goes through a slew of sports stars including Gareth Bale and Dele Alli.
Not just the aforementioned duo, but ‘Charlotte’ gives former Welsh flanker Sam Burtton a bone-crunching tackle, before proceeding to smash Britain’s No1. female Tennis player, Johanna Konta.
In an ad that is reminiscent of the ‘Jose +10’ commercial that was aired by German sportswear giants Addidas during the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the plucky lass then proceeds to nutmeg Alli, shrug off a challenge by Jesse Lingard and then score, before calmly plopping onto to her sofa.
All in a day’s work and here’s the video:
While the WTA Tour, UFC Championships, Moto GP and rugby are briefly touched upon, the focus here is clear: Football. Premier League and UEFA Champions League football to be even more precise.
The video been quite the rage on social media, with mostly positive reactions on the 1-minute long commercial.
Alli, Bale and Lingard have shared it on their respective social media handles as well to ensure that unless you live under a rock, you’re going to come across the advert.
BT have bagged the majority of the rights to air UEFA Champions League and Premier League games in the United Kingdom.
The 2018/19 Premier League campaign kicks off on August 10 when Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford for the opener.
While the Champions League is already underway, these are the preliminary rounds that are going on at the moment. The group-stages begin on September 18-19.
