You’ve seen it a thousand times before. A new signing sits down for his welcome-to-the-club interview, where he’ll proceed to say how happy he is to be here and that the move is a dream come true.
It’s good stuff, but we wanted to do something different to greet West Ham new boy Jack Wilshere.
So, this is what we went for:
Jack thinks he’s sitting down for a run-of-the-mill interview with Hammers sponsors Betway to discuss his summer move to the London Stadium. What he doesn’t realise is that the whole thing is one elaborate prank.
The person asking the questions is Lee, an actor who we’ve hired to play the role of the clueless interviewer. Even better, Hammers club captain Mark Noble and team-mate Aaron Cresswell, are in on the joke, too.
Watching on in secret from the room next door and communicating with Lee through an earpiece, Noble and Cresswell – providing they can hold it together – ask all sorts of weird and wonderful questions.
How does Jack respond? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!
Highlights from the video include:
- He is thinking: “What is going on?!”
- “New signings often have to do initiations….” But does Jack suspect anything’s up?
- “You play in a similar position to the club captain…” Lee asks Jack a very tough question.
- “He’s bigger up top.” Which team-mate is Jack talking about?
- “He’s fuming, you know!” This is torture!” Noble and Cresswell struggle to watch.
- “My cousin will never know.” Just what is Lee asking Jack to do?https://blog.betway.com/foo...
