Put on Your Best of British

Calling on football fans from around the UK. We don’t often have a chance to celebrate being British in the world of football, what with the home nations struggling to make it to the big championships and crashing and burning if they do get there. It’s a continue battle, having to put up with the taunts of Germany, France and now Spain, who have all won big tournaments in recent years. When was the last time a home nation won a major tournament? Everyone will tell you, even Scottish fans begrudgingly, that it was when England won the World Cup at Wembley in 1966. You do the maths; soon it will be fifty years since silverware was lifted. However, here’s an opportunity for you to show your Best of British and win a tidy cash prize.

Betfair are running a competition, which requires your British accent to come to the fore. You don’t even have to use your own accent if you don’t want to, if you’re something of a specialist when it comes to accents then you can show off and use a completely different one. It doesn’t matter whether you use a Geordie, Scouse, Cockney or Brummie accent, as long as you sound 100 per cent British then the job’s a good ‘un. So get practising that accent to make sure that you can pull it off without any trouble at all. That’s half the job done; but what do you need this accent for I hear you ask? Now all you’ve got to do is create a great video!

Betfair are looking for you to create a video that explains what they’re all about. If you’re not familiar with the betting website, then you might want to do a bit of research while you’re perfecting that accent. The three million strong betting community want you to explain their betting system, how other than football there are sports aplenty for you to bet on and that you can even bet in-play. Cram all that info into a 60-90 second video and Bob’s your uncle. You’ll be marked on how compelling your story is, the production quality of your video, how well you capture the spirit of Betfair and how accurate your video is, so don’t go telling porkies!

Watch the clip below to get an idea on just what you have to do and then get making your video so that you’ll be in with a chance of winning a chunk of the $15,000 prize pool. If that wasn’t incentive enough, I don’t know what is…
