Friday Funnies - The Samsung School of Rugby, with Jack Whitehall

Samsung have launched a humorous new campaign that features comedian Jack Whitehall taking on England legends on the training field. Martin Johnson and Lawrence Dallaglio put him through his paces, along with the likes of Jason Robinson and Maggie Alphonsi.

The campaign leads with six short videos, all themed around key attributes of rugby. It focuses on Whitehall being schooled in the sport by a who’s who of England rugby legends, as they talk him through elements of the game with hilarious effect. 

“Rugby is a fascinating and sometimes utterly baffling sport and the Samsung School of Rugby offers a light hearted look at the game to really get people excited about rugby,” said Whitehall. “I had to sacrifice my health and well-being as I battled it out against the likes of Lawrence Dallaglio and Jason Robinson but think the end results are worth it.

“Though I doubt Martin Johnson will want to ever see me again.”

There is also an additional 360-degree virtual reality shot that provides a completely immersive experience, with fans able to experience a lesson up close with Jack.
