Betfair has partnered with Manchester United for a new viral, as part of the integrated campaign for its mobile service, Betfair Mobile.

The Stars and Strikes YouTube spot, features six Manchester United players including Dimitar Berbatov, Ashley Young and Patrice Evra competing against one another in a bowling alley, to see who can knock down as many pins with a football in 40 seconds.

The ad, which was created by Karmarama, challenges viewers to a place a virtual bet on which United player has the best aim.
