Manchester United legend Eric Cantona makes a shock appearance in Liam Gallagher’s music video for Once. The singer surprised everyone with this inclusion, as Liam is a die-hard Manchester City fans, United’s big rivals.
In the video, we see Eric sitting in a plush dining room, being waited on by Liam himself. He walks around a grand country house, befitting of his nickname King Eric. He sings the lyrics to the song as if he’s Liam. Seeing Eric’s characteristically French accent replaced with a Manc one is a little jarring to say the least.
We see the footballer wandering around his mansion as he belts out Liam’s vocals. He looks faintly ridiculous, as he wanders around in nothing but his pants and an old dressing gown. It’s never explained why Cantona is featured in Liam’s video, but there are a lot of parallels between the two of them. They’re both known for their brash, loud speaking styles and arrogant personalities. Maybe they are two sides of the same coin, the best of frenemies? What do you think? Do they have more in common than people think?
