Sky Adverts: Mutu, Gila, Frey, Pepe, Quagliarella, Pato, Miccoli and Ronaldinho  

(And be quick about it, intern!)

Because they want awesome ads, Sky Italia are putting footballers (and rugby players, and basketballers) to work in their offices. So far, we've learned that: Mutu is bad with technology, Pato comes off the bench for Sky, Miccoli works in the mail room (with Earl Boykins!), Ronaldinho gets to edit the calls of his own goals, and everyone wears their kits to work, even if they're not outside.

Anyone who finds more, drop them in the comments!

ETA: Another, featuring Viola and Udine boys. (Just ignore Quagliarella and focus on Pepe.)

I don't understand you and Conny and the photocopier freakouts! Beating technology (usually) doesn't help, you know. *g*

Is the page not coming up, or is it just loading really, really slow? Cos the latter happens to me, but if you pause and just let it load, it eventually works. (It wouldn't go in Firefox, though, I had to use Opera for it.)

Oh, bless the little enthusiastic Duckling. *ruffles his curlies*

[I have a similar effect on photocopiers as Mutu - so much so, that I am not allowed to use the one in one of the offices as I have broken it so often. I have to get someone (ANYONE) else to do my photocopying for me. *hangs head in shame*]

Edit: Also, just to let you know the other video works in IE, as well. Like you say, it takes a while to load, but it gets there eventually!

[I had no idea so many people on my flist had copier issues! So far it's you, Kellie and Conny -- heaven knows how many more this will bring out of the wordwork. I have to say, though, I do giggle slightly at the thought of you standing by the copier, waiting impatiently for someone to turn up who can make it go. *grin*]

LMAO poor Adi and the photocopier. Strangely enough I'm quite paranoid about using them because knowing me I'll be the reason why it doesn't work again and then someone will have to come and repair it.

I HEART (obvs cos it's Pato) Pato's commercial LMAO LMAO LMAO I wish that Pato could come in for me during presentations/class discussions/anythingelseirathernotbeat.

Excuse me while I go ponder the question of why I don't have any of these guys here to help me get things done. Imagine how productive I would be if I had *quote fingers* some help *end quote fingers*.

If that Mutu idea had been filmed on Pippo, it would just have had Pippo get someone else to do all the work for him.

Why is it so short, though? And does your still photo come from a different spot?
Javier Zanetti's OCD.: misc | JT gettin downbustedflush on March 26th, 2009 06:17 pm (UTC)
They do similar ads on the main sports channel here, and they're always annoyingly short -- maybe all the straight-face/non-fail they think they can get out of the athletes is 15-20 seconds? And that picture must be just a promo thing, for now. But perhaps they're planning a series called "Adrian Mutu, Office Boy!" (In which Pippo will make a guest appearance, dramatically lamenting Adi's copy machine uselessness.)

Reading the comments here has massively increased my idea of my own usefulness. Up until today I would have said I couldn't do anything other than spell correctly and make photocopies. Now I see that my skills are, in fact, in extremely high demand! XD

Too bad they don't have monty in the ad sitting in conference room, looks bitchy & bored as hell lol

i'm so looking fwd to Juve one (if they had any) I want Chiellini working the powerpoint presentation. i bet he'd rock it XD (and of course, elf-ling running around the office :P)

Mutu's mounting incompetence over the two videos combined with his lack of concern about it cracks me up -- thank god he's good at football and doesn't have to work in an office, or something. *g*

LOLOLOLOL I'm ashamed to say it, but I'm greatly looking forward to a Juve one, too. *hides face* I checked this morning for Juve and Roma ones but didn't see anything -- will keep looking, though, and if you run into anything in Juve land, please share it!

lol The way these things are going, it wouldn't be a surprise if there's one somewhere of Mutu giving out those security badges to armed thieves, or something -- soon they'll just be telling him to sit in the corner and not touch anything.
T. J. Hoshieihoshka on March 27th, 2009 04:47 am (UTC)
Haha, I'm not sure whether I'm more amused at Mutu being blase-ly (but cutely) crap at being the gopher, or that Frey and Gila seem to be really, really good at their jobs.

Also, it seems that Adrian is not the only one who can't work the copier. I guess at least footballers have some excuse for thinking that kicking is a appropriate response to workplace challenges.
