The life of Man United star Shinji Kagawa, from birth to the present day, documented in a new Kirin advert
A brilliant new advert was released by Kirin on Saturday in Japan, starring Manchester United star Shinji Kawaga.
In less than 24 hours on YouTube, the video has amassed almost 100,000 views to again show just how powerful a marketing tool Kagawa is in his homeland.
The commercial, which feels like a mini big budget film, documents the life of Shinji Kagawa from birth to the present day.
Starting with the moment of Kagawa’s birth, the video traces Kagawa’s upbringing from childhood, with subtle references to the star’s career at Cerezo Osaka, Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United.
