Bizarre Japanese Man Utd Tomato Juice Advert

The Premier League's quest for world domination knows no bounds, particularly the increasing tendencies of its clubs to try and maximise their 'revenue streams' and expand into new markets.

But, really, this is just a bit weird.

Japanese Tomato Juice company Kagome - Manchester United's official soft drink partner in Japan (of course) - have produced this extremely strange advert, featuring Robin Van Persie, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs and United's Japanese superstar Shinji Kagawa. It comprises nothing but a black background, some very loud gulping down of tomato juice and a few words of Japanese.

Perhaps a smile from Michael Carrick is all you need to sell products in Japan.
