'The Whistle'
24 January 2024 60s
Whistle me this, whistle me that.
by Andrew MacGregor

We like to think that on the set of this UPS ad, director Sam Huntley went up to former Liverpool striker Kenny Dalglish and said: "You know how to whistle, don't you, Kenny? You just put your lips together and blow." When else does such an opportunity come up, after all?

Inspired by the 'Allez, Allez, Allez' chant ("We've conquered all of Europe, we're never going to stop/From Paris down to Turkey, we've won the fucking lot"), the commercial has UPS drivers, local residents, and Ian Rush whistle a merry tune. The only let-down is Dalglish, who maybe doesn't know how to whistle!

It ends with a delivery for Jurgen Klopp, though we only see the manager's hands on this occasion. If José Mourinho is/was The Special One, then Klopp is The Normal One—that's what his new mug says, anyway.
