VIPs Zlatan Ibrahimović and Cara Delevingne were in Leeds recently for publicity photoshoots – at least, that’s what students in Headingley and shoppers in Leeds thought.
The model and footballer were actually lookalike actors hired by Trinity Leeds shopping centre for a film ahead of its Student Night event this Tuesday.
Stunned students watched as ’Zlatan’ posed for photographers at a spoof energy drink launch outside Arc in Headingley, then performed keepie-uppies on the grass before being driven away in a black Ferrari.
Meanwhile in Trinity Leeds, shoppers gathered to watch as a Cara Delevingne lookalike modelled clothes for a photoshoot.
Dan Wharton, Marketing Manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “We wanted to create a fun film to show that, unlike the two hired lookalike actors, our Student Night discounts are absolutely the ‘real deal’.
“It was incredible to see the reactions of onlookers as they thought they were watching one of the world’s most recognisable footballers mixing with students in Headingley – he even signed autographs and posed for selfies.”
Student Night, which last year attracted 25,000 students, takes place on Tuesday 27 September 2016 from 6:30pm-10:30pm at Trinity Leeds. More than 80 shops will be offering student discounts of up to 50% for one night only.
