Retro Football: 13-Year Old Scott Parker Stars In McDonald’s World Cup Advert, 1993 (Video)

By Chris Wright

I distantly recall this McDonald’s advert doing the rounds before World Cup ’94 in America, but until this very day I had no idea that the wedge-haired oik in dangerously short shorts was none other than the current FWA Player of the Year, Scott ‘Jimmy’ Parker…

I’d call shenanigans as Jimmy hasn’t got the hair of a WWI infantryman, nor is he completely drenched in sweat after five minutes of football – but those Tibetan fox eyes are a dead giveaway.

There you go, I guess you do learn something new every day.

Top marks to the Telegraph for the spot.

    Even a thirteen year old ‘Jimmy’ knows that McDonalds is not going to make him an athlete.
