As most everyone in Europe knows, it’s nearly time for the 6 Nations tournament in the Rugby World and Powerade have hit us up with this sweet new viral starring four Rugby internationals and one average joe.
Part-time rugby enthusiast and full-time carpenter Matt Taylor is put to the test as he takes on Simon Shaw (Eng), Luke Fitzgerald (Ire), Kelly Brown (Sco), Alun-Wyn Jones (Wal) in a 60 minutes sweat session under the floodlights at Twickenham.
Matt manages to hold his own in the sprinting exercises and brings out the competitive side of the 100kg+ Rugby boys, who soon get the chance to get their own back in some of the strength and tacking exercises – Ouch!
The whole ad is based around finding out how much sweat everyone loses during an intense session – something that everyone from every sport should know a little bit about – with some of the pro’s losing as much as 1.4 litres in pure sweat! Nice!
It is, of course, an ad – so expect a fair amount of the phrase ‘Powerade replaces…’ but it’s definitely worth a watch for the way it’s filmed! Rugby or not, the action looks awesome under the floodlights, and it’s definitely worth 3 minutes of your time!
