UPDATE: Karim “Models” Fugly New Kit

26 May

Watch as Karim awkwardly models the new home kit in this new video along with other Adidas looks.  He must learn to never tuck the shirt in – it looks terrible when they do that! He’s a hot, hot man, but that makes him look like a nerd. Well, at least we know what the white kit looks like and can begin going through the 5 stages of grief. Sigh. Let’s hope some of the other ones aren’t real (I’m looking at you, seizure inducing check print)! Watishista! maddy found this footage – thanks, girl!

UPDATE! In the time it took me to type up this post, the full video was yanked from Vimeo! Luckily, @Madridsta_ had the sense to make a gif of the appropriate part here. Maddy also sent that on.

    It doesn´t looks too bad for me or maybe I´m a little biased because is Karim modeling it but he makes it looks better.

      Oh he makes it look as good as it possibly can because he’s gorgeous. I’m just being grumpy because it’s going to look like shit on me and any other average person on the planet! 😉

          I wonder if Sergio suggested the color…I mean GOLD? That has Sergio written all over it. We should be thankful it’s not ‘glittery’ gold. Haha! Awww, you know I love you and your odd choice of colors, Sese! 🙂

    In the video (but not on the gif) Benzie lifts his arms to reveal these pocket-like patches trimmed with gold located under his armpits.

    Seriously! Do they need to pocket their sweat?

      The sweat pockets are HIDEOUS! I was so pissed when they removed the video.

        oh so THATS what they are. sweat pockets. i wondered about them..

        these kits are just the worst. the collar just makes it more horrible. had there been no collar it would have been stomachable..

        why couldnt they just go with the marca design?

        how could they do this to our beautiful players? were there complaints from the other teams that madrid players are too goodlooking and adidas should do something to decrease their appeal?
