Arsenal heroes star in spoof viral video to mock release of Wenger documentary

A SPOOF video parodying the release of a new film about Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger has gone viral.

The documentary ‘Arsene Wenger: Invincible’ is available for fans to download today and tells the story of Arsenal's unbeaten season in 2003/04.

And that’s not escaped the attentions of Irish bookies Paddy Power, who have released a trailer for their very own rival production which has been watched thousands of times online.

Published across their social media platforms, some of the Gunners’ most iconic players appear to laud what presumably is the Frenchman.

Former right-back Nigel Winterburn grins as he says ‘in a way, I think it was destiny’ before ex-striker Kevin Campbell says ‘it was a huge thing for the club, and for football’.

But it soon emerges, true to Paddy Power form, everything isn’t what it seems.

In a dig at the two North London giants, the trailer reads: “From the makers of Two months in 2020 – The Story of Tottenham’s title challenge’ & ‘Pepe – The man who dribbled past Van Dijk’

Paddy Power ambassador Peter Crouch then appears on screen to say ‘he arrived at Arsenal, and English football was never the same again’ before Jose Mourinho adds: “He was the last one of his type.”

Although it quickly becomes apparent that Winterburn, Campbell and co are not talking about Wenger. Instead, it’s a celebration of another Arsenal hero – their iconic mascot Gunnersaurus.

After images of the green dinosaur appear on screen, a serious-looking Campbell says: “There was a huge drinking culture at the club at the time, but he drank us under the table. And he was 160 million years old don’t forget.”

An equally stern Winterburn adds “his family died when that comet hit the earth” before Crouch interjects: “So he channelled his energy into football, and boy did it pay off”.

In an emotional turn, a mascot in a bees outfit appears and, fighting back tears, says: “He paved the way for all of us. Every single mascot working in English football owes him. Without him, I'd be working in KFC."

A spokesman for the mischievous bookies said: “I’m sure the new Arsene Wenger documentary is a good watch but it felt an oversight not to celebrate a true legend.

"If Netflix want us to make a full version, we'll happily oblige. Otherwise they can crack on and finish a feature length film for Unai Emery."

The actual Wenger documentary was released in cinemas earlier this month and is available to download today.
