Ford Portugal "Looking For Champions" (2013) 2:00 (Portugal)

Ford Portugal is the official sponsor of the UEFA Champions League. They are bringing the final game to Lisbon next year. Instead of just celebrating the sponsorship, they turned it into a fun "search for the next champion" challenge.

They placed the cup in a busy part of the city to see if anyone could lift it Excalibur-style. But not just anyone could lift it. Only kids could, thanks to some electromagnetic controls.

One tends to be suspicious of such case studies as being fabricated, but the scared look on some of the kids at the end shows the authenticity of the stunt.

For those in who speak Portuguese or want to check it out, go to for more info.

Fun stuff.



Judging by the kids' somewhat scared/surprised expressions when the team comes running, I reckon that at least they were not staged. Good for them! Getting real tired of all the staged stunts.
