The FA Releases Nike Spoof Video To Promote Local Game
There’s Premier League football, and then there’s Sunday League football. One is glamourous. The other is a mixture of aching limbs, no glory, pints of beer and having a laugh.
The latter is portrayed in a surprisingly trendy viral video from The FA (yes, the Football Association). It’s a spoof of the Nike video that was released a few months ago. The FA version reminds me a lot of the song “Parklife” by Blur. Very British and none of the fictitious nonsense you see on BBC dramas that air on PBS on Saturday nights.
