Lipton Ice Tea have released a new Turkish commercial featuring Galatasaray’s hottest couple, Wesley Sneijder and his beau Yolanthe Cabau. Sneijder has had an advertising deal with Lipton Ice Tea for several years now, however this is the first time the drinks manufacturer have used their Dutch star to try and deepen their presence in the Turkish market.
Wesley and Yolanthe Sneijder Cabau have adjusted their life in less than 3 months. The couple relocated to Istanbul after Galatasaray signed Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan. The Sneijder’s appeared before the Turkish press to introduce their new commercial for Lipton Ice Tea.
This is the first time that the popular couple has appeared together in front of the camera for an advertisement like this.
“We really love Turkey. Turkey accepted us, loved us, embraced us and we hope to stay here for a long time!” , Yolanthe says.
She likes being referred to as Yenge, it’s a turkish word for ‘sister-in-law’. The wife of one’s brother. “ What I like is that everybody is calling me this and Wesley is the ‘abi’ (elder brother), she said. “ I have a large family with 8 sisters and 4 brothers.. but now I have 90 million brothers and sisters!”
In the Lipton Ice Tea commercial Yenge and Abi are talking Turkish. It’s funny and will likely win the heart of millions when the commercial first airs.
