'Euro 2024 Pinball'
28 May 2024 40s
A bumper summer ahead.
by Andrew MacGregor

Rishi Sunak thought he was on safe ground when he asked voters in Barry: "So are you looking forward to all the football?" The only problem was that Wales failed to qualify for Euro 2024. The two home nations that did make it to Germany are England and Scotland, so they get to appear in BBC Sport's 40" promo.

Inspired by the topsy-turvy to-and-fro of a pinball machine, the ad turns the likes of Harry Kane, Andy Robertson, Luka Modric, and Kylian Mbappé into arcade icons. Directors Balázs Simon and Raman Djafari have done a swell job with the nu-retro cabinet—it's just a shame we can't sink a few coins into the real thing!
