Western Union

Legends in Disguise

About the Project

Western Union and Liverpool FC are driven by a passion for bringing global communities together. As the club’s official money transfer partner, Western Union wished to highlight this positive perspective on life with heart-warming and shareable fan-centric content.


‘Legends In Disguise’

Liverpool FC is a club steeped in history with some of the most successful and best-loved ex-players of any top team. Prism devised a video content series that would aim to bring loyal Liverpool FC fans

closer to their idols, building sincere brand sentiment and raising wide smiles of surprise. The stars of the show were Liverpool Legends in disguise Bruce Grobbelaar, John Barnes and Jason McAteer.


Surprise and Delight

Directing the Legends through their humorous scripts, with the fans none the wiser, was a filming highlight, and the stars’ personalities shone through. But, it was the fans’ joy of surprise at meeting

their idols that made the content so shareable, earning eight million views and 13 million fan engagements across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Back of the net, as they say!
