Editor's Pick

A group of fathers who also happen to be advertising execs created this ad to help bring good manners to the beautiful game of football. The spot depicts a classroom of kids behaving like hooligans toward their teacher after she gives one of their classmates a good grade, using a shocking parallel to uncover the bad behavior of premiership footballers when they don't agree with a referee's decision. The ad directs viewers to the Keep Footy Beautiful Facebook page, where it asks people to join and petition the FA and PFA to bring good sportsmanship back to football.
