Arsenal stars team up to test new CitroenWed, 22 Jan 2014
THE CITROEN C4 Grand Picasso has been run through its paces in a new video featuring some of the stars from Arsenal Football Club.
Striker Olivier Giroud, midfield man Santi Cazorla, defensive supremo Per Mertesacker and the safe hands of Wojciech Szczęsny teamed up to headline a football-themed test of the car’s new features.
They highlight the wide door and boot openings with a spot of free-kick and goalkeeping practice, before 1.98-metre Mertesacker lies along the length of the available load space with all six passenger seats folded down.
Mertesacker and Giroud then play a game of high-stakes automated parking, tasking the Grand Picasso with parking itself between a Ferrari F430 and a Maserati GranTurismo; presumably belonging to the players themselves.
At the end of a no doubt tough afternoon’s work the players enjoy some relaxation on the range-topping Grand Picasso’s massaging front seats.
The video of the antics is now on YouTube, complete with footie-style commentary from a man in an authentic commentator’s coat and flat cap.
