The Playbook For The Modern Man

Manchester United & Independence Day Team Up For World’s Worst Trailer

The lads over at Manchester United Football Club have brought their shining talents to a brand new game: Acting.

In the latest cross-promotional trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, Captain Wayne Rooney and his cohort of Hollywood rejects including Juan Mata, Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Daley Blind are taking on the alien invasion with the help of Jeff Golblum directing them through an intergalactic battle.

How do we know?


Because Topgun Wayne Rooney emphatically uttered the magical line, “Nice battle boys, but the war isn’t over – we’ve got a game to get to!”

The one and a half minute clip is so bad, it may as well be good in a pseudo-hipster kind of way. Who are we kidding. It’s just plain cringeworthy and hilarious. Their last cameo in the Deadpool teaser helmed by Ryan Reynolds faired a much better response from fans.

Survey the damage for yourself in the trailer above.
