SCOTLAND’S WOMEN FOOTBALL HEROES GET A HEART-WARMING SURPRISE
Vauxhall Motors surprises Erin Cuthbert, Frankie Brown and Christie Murray in touching video
Wednesday 12th July 2017: To celebrate the summer of football, Vauxhall Motors surprises Scotland players Erin Cuthbert, Frankie Brown and Christie Murray with their own personalised chants in a heart-warming hidden camera video.
In the candid film, the players arrive at Oriam, Scotland’s national performance centre for sport, for what they think is a meeting, completely unaware of what awaits. As the players take their seats, a large TV screen reads: ‘Attention Please’.
The video cuts back to a shot of the players, their shocked faces are laid bare as members of their family share heart-warming good luck messages. Then the simple message: ‘But wait there’s more. Every great player deserves a chant…. here are yours’.
As each individual football chant is revealed, the players are amused as shots of school children belting out lines are cut with clips of friends and family fist pumping the air as they deliver each word. Film highlights include; Frankie overcome with emotion at her Dad’s well done message, Erin crying with happiness as her Dad tells her how proud he is of her and to ‘believe in her dream’ and Christie’s beaming smile as she watches her little cousins sing the chant together.
The chants have been created as part of Vauxhall Motors’ sponsorship of the national football teams recorded for fans to listen to as part of their #GetIN campaign.
Cheryl Stibbs, Sponsorship Marketing Manager at Vauxhall Motors said: “The Scotland team has done so well and we want to get the whole country right behind them as they head off for the big tournament. We wish the team the very best of luck and hope people join us and make some noise for the players this summer”.
Midfielder Erin Cuthbert commented: “It was such a surprise to see my family, friends and even an old school teacher filmed right under my nose in Irvine and so lovely hearing the good luck messages – they all managed to keep that very quiet! I love all the chants and really hope everyone gets behind us when the games begin.”
As official sponsor of the national teams, Vauxhall Motors launched #GetIN to help fans to show support for their teams, celebrate the spirit of football and give fans one off experiences and real #GetIN moments.
