Marco Reus and Gianluigi Buffon star in new Puma advert

Published Add your comment

Puma have put two of their sponsored athletes face to face in their latest advert campaign and the results are quite strange.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus are the two footballers in question and the bizarre video sees them have a fully functioning conversation despite them both speaking two different languages.


The video was filmed ahead of the Champions League last-16 clash between Juventus and Dortmund in which both will feature. It will be the first time that the two teams have faced each other since 1997 when the Germans beat the Italians in the Champions League final.

In the video the pair discussed their careers, their heroes and who would win when their teams face each other. The first thing they agreed on was who the best goalkeeper in the world is.

Q & A

When Reus posed the question, Buffin answered: “Well, we should speak about the second best because we all know who the best is…”

Reus added: “You of course”

Both men predicted that their team would be victorious over the other and then spoke about a wide variety of other things including beards and film. A strange yet humorous video that was just another chance for Buffon to show off just how cool he actually is. Both he and Andrea Pirlo in the same team, could Juventus get any more Italian?


This campaign has gone a little better than a previous one of Puma’s when last year they made a bit of a blunder with a social media campaign.

They allowed Twitter uses to tweet Puma athletes like Reus, Mario Balotelli, and Radamel Falcao in order to get a personalised response in the form of a digitally signed photo. However, Twitter uses weren’t stupid as they realised if they changed their usernames, then the personalised response could have a number of dodgy messages written on them, with Reus’ one saying, “Cocaine, I couldn’t do it without you.”
