Is there anything he can’t do? Rescue kittens from tall trees, balance goats on his back whilst in expert yoga positions, perform motorbike tricks, his talents have no end. In our Freestyle advert we see Phil excel at another one of his secret hobbies, the art of freestyle football (and he’s very good at it, even if we say so ourselves).
Okay, maybe the skills you see performed in our Freestyle advert weren’t ALL Phil. But he walked across that car park giving us a thumbs up...and what a walk that is. To help with some of the extra fancy footwork we called in the help of a seasoned professional, the very talented, Ben Nuttall. You might have seen Ben (or at least his feet) on the TV before, as he’s made a number of big screen appearances.
When considering potential scenarios for our Freestyle advert the possibilities seemed endless, especially when working with someone that has the footwork capabilities of our Phil. When the storyboards were drafted up only one thing was certain, the appearance of three cool kids hanging out in the car park, someone needed to be there to appreciate the Schofield’s skills.

To your left you will see Phil (and Ben’s feet) in the final edit of our Freestyle advert. The 30-second advert you see, took around eight hours to shoot and many more hours to perfect in post-production. The kids you see in the final frame of the advert were most professional, nailing the 'impressed' face in every take.
