Chelsea stars doused in paint for stunning ad campaign

Multi-millionaire Premier League stars are more often than not dismissed as mercenaries who are happy to wear the colours of whichever club is offering the biggest pay cheque or winning the most trophies.

The ‘It’s Blue, What Else Matters’ campaign sees players covered in blue liquid in a bid to get fans of the Stamford Bridge club to buy the new kit before they even see it.

The film and accompanying images, which feature some of the reigning European Champions' top stars including captain John Terry, Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard and striker Fernando Torres, are meant to show the lengths that the players will go to for their club.

Last line of defence: Goalkeeper Peter Cech said that Chelsea has become like his 'second family'
