Tottenham's Son Heung-min stars in bizarre advert using ice creams as maracas

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final: First Leg

Son Heung-min was a surprise absentee from Tottenham's starting line-up to face Huddersfield on Saturday.

Despite scoring against Manchester City in the Champions League in midweek, the South Korean only made the bench and came on with four minutes left.

Not that Spurs really needed him. Goals from Victor Wanyama and Lucas Moura - who ended up scoring a hat-trick - gave the hosts a 2-0 lead within 30 minutes to make it a comfortable game.

Mauricio Pochettino explained his reasons for not starting Son in his pre-match press conference, saying: "It's a very important game in the Champions League against Manchester City.

"We are forced to make changes with a few injuries to Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Dele Alli. Then because we need fresh players and full of energy. It will be a very hard game.

"We have a good squad and we take the decision that to win the game we need full energy from beginning."

Pochettino's decision to leave out Son is understandable because they're going to be without Kane for Wednesday's second leg against City.

Or maybe the 26-year-old's absence was actually because he's been too busy filming cheesy ice cream adverts in South Korea recently?

You'll see what we mean when you watch the strange video below.

Son dancing and using South Korea's answer to the Cornetto as maracas makes for quite possibly the worst advert ever.

Luckily for Son, he can do no wrong in the eyes of Tottenham fans at the moment.

He's scored 12 goals in 26 Premier League appearances this season and notably came to Spurs' rescue on a number of occasions while Kane was out injured earlier this year.

Pochettino will only hope he can make the same impact now that Kane is expected to miss the rest of the season with another ankle injury.
