Allianz Arena crumbles to the ground in TV advert

German giants Bayern Munich are apparently unimpressed by a TV commercial which aired during their Champions League tie with Lyon, which showed their Allianz Arena home being reduced to a pile of rubble. The footage was an advert for the film The Day The Earth Stood Still, but the commercial’s breaking news format and the use of genuine news presenter Frank Buschmann reportedly left many viewers shocked.

Bayern media director Markus Hoerwick said: “We were not informed and were also not asked for permission. It is not to our benefit for the Arena to be represented in such a way. We will examine now whether and how we react to it.”
