You know how it is. There you are, sitting on your PC or laptop, beavering away on a much needed work related document, paying a bill via electronic banking or just emailing a mate then…ping…up pops a message on Facebook or Skype from an old acquaintance, an ex partner or some geezer in Nigeria who says you’ve won 50 grand on their national lottery and all you need to do to collect the cash is send him £1000 to sort it out for you. Yeah right.
At Footy Boots, we rarely have time for social networking, so busy are we researching and sourcing the latest products and new developments in the football boot world.
But that may be about to change.
Imagine that you could interact, via the wonders of the Net with six of the biggest names in football on the planet.
With social networking now no longer solely in the domain of computer geeks, people who can’t get a boyfriend or girlfriend or individuals who really should get out more, drinks company Pepsi have embraced the phenomenon and have announced details of a new website that will allow users to set up their own profile and compare their interests with the likes of David Beckham, Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho.
The sextet is completed by Cesc Fabregas, Lionel Messi and Frank Lampard.
All six players will star in a multi million pound TV advertisement campaign which is due to be launched next month.
The new pepsi website' features a section called ‘Youniverse’ where users can design their profile as well as taking a look at a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the ad, with commentary from all six players.
Duly enthused by this initiative, at Footy Boots we’ve already signed up, being keen to know if any of the ‘Sexy Six’ share a passion for our great interests outside of newly designed football boots – those being pigeon fancying, German films of the 1950’s and Haribo Sour Mix. C’mon Beck, lets be hearing from you.
