Freestyle Soccer Star Séan Garnier Wows Crowd With Old-Man Prank
Posted By Kotei Kotey On June 13, 2014 @ 5:11 pm In Bulletin Today,Entertainment | No Comments
He’s the aging alter ego of Séan Garnier, a freestyle soccer star from Sens, France, whose uncanny ability to incorporate break dancing and a jaw-dropping array of tricks into his sport has won him a devoted legion of fans worldwide.
Garnier, 29, spent five hours being made up as someone well into his older years to slip incognito into a pick-up game with the locals for a commercial staged by the Mexican retail company Coppel.
After a deliberately slow and shaky start, Garnier kicks it up a notch and shows the youngsters what he’s made of – which is, pretty much, magic.
Have a look for yourself:
The ad mirrors a Pepsi commercial featuring Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kyrie Irving in which he becomes “Uncle Drew” in a street basketball game.
