Rossi goes on patrol

MotoGP star Valentino Rossi traded his racing leathers and crash helmet for a motorcycle cop outfit as he went on patrol in Rome, Italy, for the shooting of an advertisement for Italian company TIM.

The Yamaha rider teamed up with Italian actor Christian de Sica for a 50-second spot broadcasted on Italian channels since the beginning of the month.

In the ad, Rossi plays the role of ‘Corrado', a goofy motorcycle cop, hinting at one of the seven-time World Champion's historic feud. The ad is based on an idea by the Mortaroli & Friends studio who have written several acclaimed ads for the Italian telecommunications company.
