Here’s one for you Gooners out there. Magician and renowned ‘card shark’ Drummond Money-Coutts appeared at Arsenal’s London Colney training ground recently to perform a special Citroen-themed illusion. For ‘The Amazing Cabrio Car Trick’ the magician got some help from Arsenal first team players Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Wojciech Szczesny.
With a Citroen DS3 Cabrio hidden under wraps, Drummond asks the players to choose a colour of the car, a playing card, a memorable year for Arsenal and one of the club’s former legends. After each player has delivered their answer, Drummond pulls back the covers to reveal the car, but will it be as the players have specified. A club legend then appears, stunning Ramsey and co.
Jules Tilstone, marketing director at Citroen UK said: “The aim of this project was to create a fun and original piece of content to both leverage and celebrate Citroen’s on-going partnership with Arsenal as Official Automotive Partner. Drummond is world class in his skill set, so it was a great experience to bring him together with the Arsenal players who are top of their game in their own world.”
Citroen is running a Facebook competition in the UK to give away the £21,300 DS3 Cabrio DSport that was used in the video. We’ve heard about the DS3 hatchback joining the DS4 and DS5 in Malaysia, and you can read more about that here.
