DescriptionColour advert with sound, promoting The Observer's giveaway offer for reprinted Panini World Cup sticker albums and historic match reports.

Shows a boy carrying out a number of good deeds in order to save pocket money. The boy is seen sitting in his room surrounded by football paraphernalia, doing his friends homework, kissing his Grannie, collecting money in a football money box, crossing his fingers that he gets the sticker he needs and covering his face in dismay when he doesn't.
The advert ends with a zoomed shot of a copy of The Observer and seven sticker albums, a panini logo is in the left hand corner before a close-up of the boys face when he 'relives' kissing his Grannie.

Commentary: "You've tidied your room. You did your mates homework. You even kissed your Grannie. And all for the Bulgarian goalkeeper. Collect the first of seven reprinted Panini World Cup albums with match reports from the time, exclusively in The Observer starting this Sunday, and relive those great World Cup's of your past, without the heartache."
