Footballers starring in commercials is a largely common sight nowadays. With the influence and fame they carry, players are an obvious choice to promote a brand’s latest offering. These adverts often keep it simple, as they highlight the product through a vanilla monologue delivered by the player.
Fortunately, Liverpool sponsors ThinkMarkets thought differently.
While their latest advert does include a standard monologue, its delivery receives a unique twist, courtesy of 2 Liverpool stars.
By letting the pair’s chemistry shine throughout the commercial, ThinkMarkets have delivered a memorable advert.
It kicks off with the duo offering befuddled looks at the prospect of online trading before the mic is handed to ‘World-Class Midfielder James Milner’. The veteran nods affirmatively before drawing a comparison between tea and online trading effortlessly.
His co-star is present for the vibes.
With dubious looks, child-like exuberance, and even mild concern, Matip goes through a range of expressions without breaking a sweat, some truly stellar work.
In the second half, Milner sums up the service while Matip prepares the perfect cup of tea.
After the Englishman takes a sip, the defender asks “are we gonna make one for me?”. A sceptical look follows and the advert concludes, safe to say, Matip never got his own cup.
