We asked Aubameyang to help us surprise Young Guns Member, Harvey on the set of UnClassic Commentary. This is harvey's story of that day...
So Harvey, tell us what happened...
I had no idea what I was in for. First of all, I watched an episode of UnClassic Commentary live, it was amazing. I was then told I’d be filming one with an Arsenal player next - it was a complete surprise.
When did you find out you’d be filming with Aubameyang?
I was waiting in my chair, in my head I’m like ‘please say it’s Auba’, he’s my favourite player. Then suddenly, I hear a voice say ‘Harvey, where’s Harvey?’. I look behind and it’s Aubameyang! I was so shocked and amazed, my idol is 2 yards away from me and I’m about to film with him.
How was the experience?
We laughed a lot, it was so much fun! Filming with Aubameyang was the best surprise I could have asked for, and it came true. It was one of the best experiences of my life and one I’ll never forget.
Did you meet any other players?
Loads, I met Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Lucas Torreira, and Hector Bellerin.
Any other highlights?
After Hector Bellerin had finished filming, he sat down to talk to me and another YG who had also won the competition. He said ‘You guys enjoy life. You are young, you can do whatever you want’. He then took off his boots, signed them and gave them to us. It was amazing.
