A bit of fun....(hopefully)

This is an amazing Nike ad that I don't think ever that got to the screen and was ultimately banned in UK in 2003....apart from Laurence ...how many famous names from the era can you spot...there's one surprise that imho shows you the estimeem he was held in at the time....
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Bit too fuzzy to see all but I did recognise the 'surprise'! Great advert :D
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.

This is slightly better quality....and the director does momentarily slow over the 'names'

Is that our very own James Simpson-Daniel at 37-38 seconds running infront of the bus?

Couldn't identify anyone else. Too old for me.

Nike and others saw JSD at that point to be the next big thing. the England incumbent winger for years to come. but as we now know bad luck, injuries and illness meant he never really had the stellar international career his skill deserved
