First Week In L.A., Ibrahimovic Lands Acting Role In Bizarre Advert

Published

Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s first acting role since moving to Los Angeles has seen the Swedish forward star in a bizarre new television commercial for a betting company.

The 36-year-old, who recently terminated his contract at Manchester United and signed for LA Galaxy, can be seen squaring off with an enemy before ending hostilities with afternoon tea in a strange turn of events.

The Bosnian advert is all in the name of gambling website Bethard, which has enlisted Ibrahimovic as one of their newest members.
The advert begins with some sinister music and a mysterious figure leaping around and crawling through a dilapidated warehouse that is on fire.

He then comes across a statue of a lion that is at the end of a path surrounded by fire. The figure pulls out a type of bazooka and proceeds to fire a rocket into the lion.

The statue explodes but Ibrahimovic, looking extremely chiselled emerges from the dust and confronts his enemy with a roar, fitting for someone who has called themselves a lion previously.

After a brief standoff and some words exchanged in Bosnian, the pair appear to forget what had brought them to this point and instead made amends with a pleasant afternoon tea.


Ibrahimovic took out a full-page advert in the Los Angeles Times to confirm his move to Major League Soccer after United agreed to cancel the final three months of his contract.

He has left Old Trafford after just a season-and-a-half in the Premier League to move to the USA after only managing seven appearances in his second season in England.

Ibrahimovic joined on a free transfer in the summer of 2016 and proved an instant success, scoring 28 goals in his debut campaign and helping United secure a League Cup and Europa League double before injuries struck.
