Fernando Torres Stars in a Horrible Low-Budget Hairdresser Ad

Ronaldo Assis de Moreira Analyst IIJanuary 23, 2009

Is this a joke or can this actually be for real?

In arguably one of the worst ads ever featuring a footballer, Liverpool and Spain star Fernando Torres stars in a truly awful video for his friend’s new hairdressing business, Gessbra.

Seemingly shot gonzo style, Torres takes the lead role in the video talking directly to the camera and acting as the spokesperson for the new salon.

The ad starts with a close-up on Torres where the Reds striker can be seen on the verge of hysterics as he speaks face-to-face with the camera.

Needing a new focus of attention, the action then quickly shifts to an unbelievably contrived scene, capturing the most smiley hairdresser in the world giving a customer a shampoo.

And from there things just get worse, with the final part of the video showing Torres himself getting a haircut from the owner of the salon while people just stand around smiling.

And then some random old people appear.
