League One hits the big-time

Apologies if this is old news to anyone, but I saw it for the first time last night so I’m guessing quite of few others might not have seen it yet.

It is an advert for the Nintendo DS featuring Leyton Orient striker Scott McGleish.

Now, Harry Redknapp, Jamie Redknapp, Nicole Kidman, JLS, Terry Wogan… we get that. But what makes you start an advertising campaign and say ‘Do you know who would be the perfect face to front this? League One 36-year-old journeyman striker Scott McGleish’?

But that’s just one of the mysteries raised by this advert. Others include do footballers really play the DS on the way to matches? Can they not afford something a bit more upmarket?
