Erin and Mason disguised as Hyundai car dealers

Chelsea FC stars go in disguise as car salespeople with Hyundai

Chelsea FC stars Mason Mount and Erin Cuthbert go undercover as Hyundai car dealers

Blues duo Mason Mount and Erin Cuthbert, from Chelsea FC's senior Men's and Women's squads, were asked to swap their studs for the sales floor, as they went under full prosthetic disguise as Hyundai sales staff.


The content, filmed back in February 2020 before lockdown, sees fellow teammates Fikayo Tomori and Kurt Zouma from the Men's team, and Ji So-Yun and Millie Bright from the Women's, expertly guide the disguised duo with one simple aim – to convince as many ‘prospective customers’ as possible to register for a test drive in the Hyundai showroom… without being recognised.



However, what Mason and Erin did not know, was that the prank was actually on them and the 'prospective customers' were in fact trained actors.

Both Mason and Erin, undercover as ‘Nick’ and ‘Shelia’, field technical and entertaining questions on the showroom floor, much to the amusement of their teammates watching from afar. They explain the difference between electric and hybrid Hyundai models, and discuss battery power as they try to successfully sell a car, whilst making a few blunders along the way.

Throughout the lockdown period, we have been working with Chelsea FC to keep families fit and active when at home, by launching Hyundai FC 'Home Advantage', a content series featuring Chelsea FC players from the Men's and Women's senior squads, to help budding footballers throughout the UK to develop their skills during the Covid-19 lockdown.
