"Try Hard" featuring Simon Zebo

Die Hard meets Father Ted in this ad for Intersport Elverys' Ultimate Fan Experience competition that is well worth a watch...

from Intersport Elverys...

Ireland rugby star Simon Zebo takes on Bruce Willis’ iconic role in our take on 80’s action blockbuster Die Hard, swapping Nakatomi Plaza for Elverys Intersport HQ in County Mayo to launch Elverys Rugby World Cup 2015 campaign.

Zebo, who is the new Elverys brand ambassador, takes on a dozen dastardly villains hell bent on stealing Elverys consignment of the 2015 Ireland Rugby World Cup jerseys. Every action hero needs an antagonist and in this case it’s Ireland’s own Hans Gruber, Patrick McDonald, of Father Ted, Savage Eye and Naked Camera fame. 

Also starring in the spoof is Farmer Michael, the man behind the internet sensation that is the Galway Daily News website.  Cameos come from the Tipperary All-Star Hurlers Séamus Callanan and Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher as the over-zealous police detectives.

All fans who purchase a Canterbury Ireland Rugby Jersey from Elverys stores nationwide or online can enter to win the Ultimate Fan Experience.
