Jose Mourinho stars in new Jaguar F-TYPE advert


A striking new advert for the Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe has been released online. It features Jaguar’s newest UK brand ambassador and Chelsea Football Club Manager, Jose Mourinho, and launches a new advertisement campaign called #LiveFearless.

New Microexpressions Jaguar Video

The new video, titled ‘Microexpressions’, shows Mourinho in a variety of close-up shots as he sits behind the wheel of a new F-TYPE R Coupe.

During this video Mourinho explains in voiceover how he is fuelled by fear. He also explains that if you pay close enough attention, you can spot his carefully masked emotional tells through what’s called microexpressions. The football manager is referring to quick and subtle facial movements that happen during intense situations.

This latest video follows another dramatic advertisement from Jaguar courtesy of its ‘British Villains’ rendezvous. The video which debuted in the UK back in April is also viewable online and features famous British actors including Sir Ben Kingsley, Mark Strong and Tom Hiddlestone.
