Betfair have released a new viral advert for their 40 pins, 40 seconds challenge. The ‘Stars and Strikes’ video features some of Manchester United’s biggest names as they took part in a one-off game of ‘football bowling’.
Ashley Young faces off with Dimitar Berbatov and Patrice Evra, are they are joined by football fan Chris Weber who’s odds are not favourable in the race to knock down as many pins as possible in 40 seconds. Darren Fletcher and Andres Lindegaard also make an appearance as the stars use Nike’s Seitiro football to wreck havoc in the bowling alley.
Reflecting on the challenge, Young said: “It was harder than I thought it would be because of the weight of the ball and having to strike it so low over a relatively short length of space. Hats off to Patrice and Berba; they showed unbelievable skills. And all I can say about Chris is ‘he tried his best!’”
