Manchester United Players Have Fun With Smithy: Sport Relief Video

Manchester United players such as Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney star in a new comedy video to raise money for the Sport Relief charity in Britain.

The new video (see excerpt above) features Smithy (the Gavin & Stacey character played by James Corden) leading the players in a workout routine (Richard Simmons, watch out). Rio Ferdinand gets a couple of words of encouragement from Smithy before Rooney and Smithy get face-to-face in a laughable sing-song.

The full clip from the video will be shown on BBC on March 19.

    Absolutey Brilliant!

    Fantastic to see Smithy. I’m a huge fan of the show Gavin and Stacey, only wish the BBC would release S2 in the states. No one on Manchester United can really dance though,…
