I’m not sure which is more bizarre. An Irishman trying to sound like an American rapper or Dimitar Berbatov giving his best impression of Marlon Brando from The Godfather. No, it’s not a dream. It’s for real in the above video from Adidas.
What do you think? Is Berba a natural? He’s got the looks, but does he have the acting skills necessary? Could he be a future Eric Cantona (i.e. footballer turned movie star?).
You can suggest your own ‘call the shots’ via the Adidas website. You’re invited to submit ideas (or vote) for what you would like to see take place at the Predator boot launch in London in late May. The 50 ideas that receive the most votes will be finalized (on 3 May) and adidas will then work with top Predator players (including the likes of Kaka, Robin Van Persie, Nani, Dimitar Berbatov, Steven Gerrard, and Petr Cech) to shape a spectacular event in a London location. Those lucky enough to have their idea feature in the top 50 will get VIP access to the launch.
