Manchester City players Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker and İlkay Gündoğan starred in a teaser for their own spy film in a campaign for Nissan. 

In a spot created by sports creative agency Dark Horses, Nissan challenged the trio to work with the recently launched Nissan Juke and create a teaser film. However, the catch was that they only had 90 minutes in which to do it. 

That resulted in a two-and-a-half minute spot that follows the path of the film being made, from storyline and character creation to filming the action and car chase scenes.

Entitled “A Little Bit Quick” - a name given to the spot by the players themselves - the film follows the drama of two special agents (played by De Bruyne and Walker) chasing the evil Dark Illy (portrayed by Gundogan).

The campaign will appear online, mostly on social channels, and will run for two to three weeks.
