Southampton Football Club "Secret Southampton" by Dark Horses

Premier League Southampton made a series of short comedy films coinciding with the release of Netflix's Stranger Things 2 to showcase the Southampton Academy's success in developing young talent.

Comedian David Earl stars as Robert Crust, a fake paranormal investigator who takes fans into the heart of Southampton’s Staplewood campus and reveals the inner workings of the football club as never seen before. The films were created by Dark Horses, the sports marketing agency co-owned by Lucky Generals.
