Being one of the best players in the Premier League, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is quite a marketable commodity off the field. The German midfielder is quite popular amongst fans of the beautiful game, and this is something that is clearly reflected in his high social media following.
Thus, it should come as no surprise that the Arsenal man is front and centre of a new ad campaign of German automobile manufacturers Mercedes.
The advertisement takes a look at how the midfielder has remained connected to his roots and what is his approach to life both on and off the field.
The ad features appearances of some of Ozil’s close friends. Interestingly, one of the people introduced as a close friend in the video is none other than Mathieu Flamini, Ozil’s former Arsenal teammate; the Frenchman even gets to speak, as he tells the world about the kind of person Ozil is.
