A word from the world’s finest club

Manchester_smGiven the dire state of affairs at Manchester United, with Malcolm Glazer provoking anger, despair, outrage and thrown plates of fish ’n’ chips among actual and honorary Mancunians everywhere, we thought we’d reprise this nice civilized Man U ad, created by Creature in Seattle for the team’s tour of the U.S. a few years back. Whether Glazer’s takeover will disrupt the club’s proud legacy, or the bottom lines of its sponsors, is hard to say. At this point, we’re just hoping they beat Arsenal in Saturday’s F.A. Cup final.
