ESPN produce brilliant Manchester derby advert

Posted by - December 8, 2012 - Manchester City, Manchester United

ESPN ofen let themselve down with their coverage of football, what with the use of outside budget studios and Craig Burley as a co-commentator, but you can’t fault this.

With the outlet showing the Manchester Derby across various nations, they have created an advert to preview the game, focussing on the feelings of fans of the two clubs as they go about their daily lives in preparation for the game.

The video does the ‘more than a game’ thing without it being too twee, which is a fairly difficult to achieve.
