Two of Puma’s biggest athletes have come head-to-head in a new viral video filmed this week ahead of the Manchester derby.
Usain Bolt – world’s fastest man and avid Manchester United fan – decided to help out Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero with a session dedicated to improving his speed, but Bolt might just have an ulterior motive…
The session starts well enough, with the Jamaican sprinter offering Sergio a pair of the new Blackberry evoSPEED 1.2‘s, but the session starts to take a turn for the suspect when Bolt starts running his own brand of ‘speed’ drills.
After the training session, AgĽero commented, "Usain was terrible at the beginning, but I realised after a while that he was just trying to wear me out. When he started to play properly, he showed some skills though.
He is not good enough to play for City, but I think he would have a good chance of getting into the United team."
Usain Bolt admitted, "Sergio's caused United a lot of problems over the years, so I thought I'd drop in on him to see if I could tire him before the game on Sunday. But turns out he's pretty fit.
I have to admit I was impressed with his qualities, United definitely need to keep him quiet but I'm sure they can do that and get three points."
For an ad with two of the world’s top athletes, there’s certainly a grass-roots feel to this video we’re a bit unsure of – but perhaps we’re just spoilt by some of the ads we see which have the same budget as a Hollywood blockbuster!
Either way, as a quick viral ahead of a big game – it’s certainly fun!
