Man United mascots get the X-Men treatment

Manchester United certainly know how to add a corporate slant to football.

As part of a promotion for the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ film, a group of the Red Devils mascots were dressed up as mutants ahead of their final Premier League match of the season against Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Not everyone thought the publicity stunt was a particularly great idea, irrespective of how effective it turned out to be.

Incidentally, Louis van Gaal’s side won the match 3-1 to secure fifth place in the Premier League.
