GALLERY 09: National Football Museum - Just Visit

This spoof of Nike's famous 'Freestyle' ad shows us how football was in the good old days. The clothing and hairstyles may seem quite ridiculous but director Mark Denton gives us a historically accurate portrayal after studying the museum's artefacts and footage. His accuracy stretches to the particular ball skills common to the period and he has also included some genuine characters, such as 'Fatty' Foulkes, the 6'6', 22 stone goalkeeper who played for Chelsea in 1905. The hand-cranked camera adds to Olde Worlde ambience.
