The Fernando Torres viral mystery solved

El Nino’s only ‘amigo’ is a Galician bank

OK, I updated a post yesterday to explain this, but this morning the net is full of fresh questions and conspiracy theories so hopefully this will put people’s minds at rest!

The series of cheesy adverts starring Fernando Torres are, in fact, a viral campaign by the Spanish bank Banco Gallego. The hair salon, tennis school and dog school featured in the commercials seem to be genuine businesses, but they are not Nando’s friends as he claims. The adverts were shot in the tongue-in-cheek cheesy style because, let’s face it, we wouldn’t all be talking about the bank if they put singing employees on their latest advert.

Case closed (takes a swig of Scotch and stares through the Venetian blinds of the Off The Post office!).
