HOLY CRAP! Who Made This Ad?!?!?

14 May

I’d comment further on this but I just can’t stop laughing. You would think that the World Football challenge could find *someone* who could pronounce ANY of the names of world famous footballers/teams correctly. OMFG. Epic fail!

    I watched this a couple days ago, and I have never laughed so hard in my life. It’s like a terrible monster truck announcer who had never heard of Real Madrid decided to make a video. Oh and the Italian names? Wretched. I can’t stop laughing. It’s just too terrible. Don’t judge all Americans by this video, rest of the world. Some of us can pronounce the names of the players.

      You got it so right! It so totally sounds and looks like a Monster Truck Rally ad.

    “Eyeker Casillias” had me howling and by the time they got to Sergio Raymose I was tearing up with laughter. I thought it couldn’t get better until they started in on the Italian names.

      It was like Lt. Aldo Raine from Inglourious Basterds was introducing them using his very best Eye-talian accent!

    I was just about to check out tickets for the Vegas game…but it hurts! I would like to see ol’ Eyeker Cas-ill-as though.

    Sounds like this video came courtesy of the Fox Soccer School of Footballer Name Manglement. Have any of you watched games on Fox Soccer Net? They’re miserable. “Callie-hone,” “Al-VAR-o Arbella,” “Mezzit Oh-sill,” etc. I don’t understand how these commenters have jobs to be honest–they clearly are unfamiliar with any of the players they’re covering.

      And don’t even get me started on how they butcher poor Toni Kroos. “Toni Cruz” is about as close as they usually get.

    Maybe the lovely folks at Mariana’s restaurant (one of the sponsors) will be glad to help the announcer with his pronunciation when the producers of the ad figure out how many Latin speaking nations they have insulted in 30 precious seconds of air time.

    […] much whatever he wants. Heck, he’s the only one whose name was pronounced correctly in that RM/Juventus ad, so he’s nigh on bulletproof. “Yeah, WTF is that all about?”  said Eyeker […]
