How unthinkable? To launch "Without Lay's there is no match", the brand partnered with Thierry Henry, 1998 FIFA World Cup France winner, two-time Premier League winner, three-time FA Cup winner and UEFA Champions League winner 2009, to make sure the fans were ready for the game with their Lay's.
In this video titled "Thierry Visits" Henry kicks off "No Lay's, No Game" in a very literal way. The Arsenal and FC Barcelona legend unexpectedly visited Barça fans at their homes to see if they were ready for the game with a load of Lay's chips. If they were, the amazing superstar forward would stay to watch the game, but if they didn't have Lay's, he would go off looking for supporters who were ready to whistle.
"I have had the privilege of playing all over the world and have lifted many trophies in front of millions of incredible fans," said Thierry Henry. "None of it prepared them for the shock of my knocking on their doors to watch a match together if they had Lay's chips. It was especially meaningful to do it in Barcelona, where I have such a strong following since our 2009 UCL Championship. Partnering with Lay's to Kicking off No Game Without Lay's was about connecting with the fans and communities who are so invested in this incredible sport, I've had a blast creating this experience with Lay's and my supporters who mean so much to me "I hope I've helped football fans always know that it's unthinkable to watch the big game without Lay's. So be ready... you never know who's going to show up next!"
