Jonas Gutierrez, Danny Simpson, Mehdi Abeid and Ryan Taylor all took part in the Pulman Volkswagen crossbar challenge video, a competition made famous by Soccer AM. It’s a humours and fantastic short-video of the four Newcastle players attempting to hit the crossbar, then at the end young Max shows the quartet how it’s done.
The video was produced to help celebrate the new Volkswagen up! competition by Pulman Volkswagen. Pulman and Newcastle United joined forces to create a fantastic competition. The competition is a crossbar challenge at the Newcastle vs Liverpool game in which two lucky people will have the chance to win a brand new Volkswagen up!
Natalie Wilson, Marketing Manager at Pulman commented, “We have a fantastic partnership with Newcastle United, and when the new Volkswagen up! was launched, first thing we wanted to do was to offer this car in a competition.
After speaking with Newcastle United, we both jumped at the chance to create the halftime crossbar challenge to win the new up!. We can’t wait for the game on the 1st April and will definitely be wishing the contestants luck to win the car.”
Julie Stout from Just Out Marketing commented: “Making the video was great fun, everyone at Newcastle, the players and of course young Max were fantastic! We were really honoured that we were asked to do the video.
Danny Simpson tweeted: “I personally think the acting was pretty good”. It’s a great video and a fantastic competition to win a brand new up!, which has just been launched by Volkswagen as their new city car. Already receiving rave reviews and winning the WhatCar small car of the year award.
