Manuel Neuer Stars in Coke Ad in Alternate Reality Where He Didn't Play Football

Joe Gallagher@joesgallagherFeatured ColumnistSeptember 18, 2015


Almost every professional footballer has been asked, at least once in their career, "what would you do if you weren't playing football?"

Thanks to this new campaign for Coke Zero, we can see what Germany's goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, would be doing were it not for his employment with Bayern Munich and the national side.

In the ad, Neuer is a "software controller at a large software company in Munich." He talks us through the finer details of his day: his commute, concentration levels and his "triple"-winning bowling team.

Only toward the end does Neuer reveal his talents as a goalkeeper.

We have to say we're glad Neuer chose the path of a footballer, just like Ryan Giggs in this old commercial for Reebok.
