Why are the All Blacks running around Tokyo tackling people?

In a new Japanese ad for AIG – a sponsor of our national rugby team – the boys in black run through the city taking down random citizens. But it’s not just to show off their strength.

As the video continues it is revealed that the All Blacks are actually saving lives! They push people out of the road so they don’t get hit by cars, save someone from having hot coffee poured on their lap and even stopping a car with a scrum so that a mother duck and her ducklings can safely cross the street.

The ad comes ahead of the next Rugby World Cup which is set to take place in Japan in 2019.

What champs!
