Viral Video: Mario Gomez takes on the Red Bull challenge

Ronaldo Assis de Moreira Analyst IIAugust 12, 2009

After their hugely successful first viral video featuring Tottenham’s David Bentley kicking a ball into a skip from the top of Red Bull towers (watch here), Red Bull have now commissioned an equally brilliant follow-up video featuring Bayern Munich’s Mario Gomez.

Gomez’s relationship with the drink manufacturer is long standing. Last season, while playing for Stuttgart, the striker managed to find himself in hot water after celebrating a goal against Borussia Dortmund by performing the “Red Bull gives you wings” slogan for which the company is famed. (Watch here.)

Although obviously a fake, the new video campaign realistically captures Gomez taking the game of “ball in the hole” to a whole new level as the striker manages to hit a variety of impossible targets from a series of impossible angles.

The fake nature of the video is made that much clearer by recalling Gomez’s real life efforts on goal including this miserable effort.

Mario Gomez’s superb Red Bull video can be seen here.
