Eric Cantona is now firmly established as an actor, but it seems he still happy to pick up the easy money by doing lucrative adverts.

The former Manchester United striker to show off the beer Kronenbourg. He introduces us to Alsace, a town where the beer is produced and those that make the drink are portrayed as Premier League footballers.

In fairness, the advert is quite a clever tongue-in-cheek look at the celebrity culture of football, and Cantona places such a role with his normal suave air of arrogance.
