Another TV Commercial by Footballers

Azkals fans, you are not alone.

After enduring the Azkals' Silver Swan Soy Sauce Commercial, we should take comfort in the fact that it is not just of Men's National Team who had to take part in a TV commercial totally unrelated to football.

English Premier League side Blackburn Rovers holds the same distinction now. Venky's Limited is an Indian company specializing in chicken meat processing, and who also happens to own the Blackburn Rovers.

As any shrewd businessman will do, Venky's wanted to maximize their investment in Rovers, resulting in this commercial :

Gives new meaning to Blackburn Rovers FC, doesn't it?
(Blackburn Rovers Fried Chicken).

I wonder if Morten Gamst Pedersen will own the 'wings'?

One thing's for sure, David Dunn and Ryan Nelsen don't need the added pounds!


  1. lol they look so adorable! :)

  2. The thought of Raul being the next endorser of Venky's chicken is a terrifying prospect. Just saying.

    (Guillem Balague reported he wanted to join Blackburn Rovers, but the Schalke chairman didn't want him to go.)
