Famous football (soccer if you live in the US) star player Cristiano Ronaldo and equally famous Formula One driver Jenson Button got together… for a session of kicking balls at a supercar doing donuts.
The interesting take on the millionaire encounter seems triggered by the stars being billed to play a key role in the latest commercial of watchmaker Tag Heuer. They both posted on Facebook about the company and used the hashtag #DontCrackUnderPressure – a smart way to promote a watch’s pressure prowess.
While one of the video posted shows an orange McLaren 650s doing donuts – with Ronaldo and Button possibly inside, the second clearly depicts the football star kicking some balls at the supercar – in a challenge to see if he can send them through the open top inside the cabin.
The McLaren 650s is the spiritual successor of the MP4-12C model, the first iteration of a road car from the Formula 1 specialists after the incredible McLaren F1 of the 1990s. Curiously, Ronaldo has even owned the MP4 model, but then again – thanks to his millions – he owned or drove almost every cool car on the planet. But the automotive kudos still goes to Jenson – who is safe to say he’s one of the fastest men on the planet.
