Possibly the Premier League’s most underrated player, Son Heung-min seems to be coming into a class of his own with some sensational performances this season, which includes his heroics against Manchester City in the Champions League.
While Son’s name is spreading like wildfire in the football community for his performances on the pitch, a video of an ad that popped up online involving him has just added fuel to the fire; this time for his performances off the pitch.
Son starred in a TV commercial for a Korean ice-cream brand recently, and to put it straight – the video is crazy, peppy and bizzare.
The flashy ad shows Son promoting the Cornetto lookalike, while dancing awkwardly to say the least. Given that Son has been seen celebrating goals with dances similar to the ones in the ad, it’s just puzzling to see Son shake it to the beat so uncomfortably.
With Son’s face literally on the ice-cream wrappers, it is sure to rack up buyers given that he is one of the hottest names in football.
And while the ad is eccentric and borderline cringe-worthy, it really does put a smile on the viewer’s face.
