A rare picture in the education of the Uruguayan team, a few days before the beginning of the Copa Americas, had aroused curiosity and even rage among some social network users. In the midst of an education of the selection leading Oscar Tabárez, Fernando Muslera interrupted an exercise to participate in his mobile phone. And after I punished someone who filmed the unusual moment. This Thursday, it was learned that everything had been part of a montage for an advertising campaign.
"You get angry with me, don't you? It bothers you that we are not champions of neglecting the bow or not being attentive," opened his message Muslera in the second video, already looking at the camera and with a fraternal attitude. And then he asked, "Shouldn't all traffic accidents caused by using the phone interfere with you?"
Then Muslera explained the risks of sending messages or talking on a mobile phone while driving a vehicle, as part of a campaign by the insurance company Mapfre.
The original video of Muslera had roused itself in a usually quiet environment like the Uruguayan national team, which lives a continuous romance with a public who values the latest successes of this generation, such as the arrival of the semi-finals in South Africa 2010 and the Cup America 2011.

It was now known that everything was part of a campaign where this effect was sought.
Meanwhile, Uruguay continues with its preparation for the debut against Ecuador, next Sunday at 7pm.
