Video: Marcus Rashford features in old Actimel advert with Sir Bobby Charlton

I remember the advert, just not a certain Marcus Rashford in the background.

Sir Bobby Charlton rudely referred to ‘Grandad’ comes to mind as Actimel got more than what they bargained for with their use of celebrity endorsement.

Little did they know that one of the children featured in the advert would go on to play for Manchester United and England.

The advert resurfaced this morning via Rashford’s Instagram. The United forward used the footage as a throwback to wish club legend Charlton a happy birthday.

He wrote on the post: “As a kid I was so excited to be in this video with a United & England legend. From then until now, he’s a constant reminder of how big an honour it is to play for both. Happy birthday, Sir Bobby.”

Charlton turns 82 today.
