Video: Manchester United players star in Japanese commercial

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are a team full of good footballers but not actors as this recent commercial shows. 

The advertisement involves a soft drink made by manufacturers Kagome and it has a selection of Manchester United's players drinking this tomato juice drink.

The players attempt to express their delight at drinking this can of juice and Ryan Giggs and Robin Van Persie both speak Japanese in the commercial.

This advert appears to be a part of an agreement Manchester United has with the company 'Kagome' as they signed a three year sponsorship deal last year. 

Japan's star footballer Shinji Kagawa also appeared in the advert and is very popular around the whole country, shown by being awarded man of the match in United's recent friendly loss although he was rather ineffective. Kagawa has had a history of being in advertisements though, recently being in a commercial for a bank. 

You can watch the video above.
