I Wouldn’t Wish This On Any Team

21 May

Oh lordy. This is apparently the new kit that Nike has designed for Barca. WTF!?! Are they trying to completely demoralize them? This looks like a drink I’d have on vacation with an umbrella in it or something from Yankee Candle’s 70% off bin. If this is on the real, then Barca, you have my sympathy. I’m not one for conspiracy theories, but after seeing this… 😉  Oy.

    Best costume ever! Can’t you just see Messi rocking this while trick or treating Halloween night?

      It looks like something that my nana would wear on a cruise to the Bahamas.

        I swear, my nana has something very similar, except with a collar. I hope for Barca’s sake this is a joke or a fake because dayum, candy corn is not a good look on anybody.

    Can’t beat them blind! 😉

      Oh god, that’s true! Evil genius!

    if they will be playing in this kit next season it will be a riot!!! Opponents will go blind from the retina burns it will cause them!!! Maybe that is the plan, blind the other guy so they can run by and score?!?!

    I call it the sherbet kit. Nike well and truly got this one wrong.

    Please, no.

    i am a barca suppoter but i seh that needs to be burned

      I hope that they don’t have to wear it often. I can’t imagine it will do all that well in kit sales, unless maybe they have a particularly awesome match in it. There are definitely some stinkers out there this year, in the kit department.

    the line about the yankee candle discount bin nearly did me in.

    • headbandsandheartbreak May 21, 2012 at 7:03 pm #

      You know that shit is true. I can’t tell you how many time I’ve hit one of those bins and ended up with a candle that looks like that to take as a last minute hostess gift. No wonder I don’t get invited places any more! 😉

      • em May 21, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

        yeah, that candle looks bad, but boy does it smell yummy when it burns! can’t say the same for that kit… and don’t burn the kit, either – carcinogenic fumes.

    First there was the Menacing Mint Green Kit, and now this luminous monstrosity of a Hawaiian Halloween cocktail? I call it the Aloha Welcome Drink Kit…which is so potent, it can only be taken in small sips.

    Too bad Villarreal were relegated. Can you imagine the Yellow Submarines versus the Aloha Welcome Drink on the pitch?

    • SierraGutierrez May 22, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

      Candy corn + sherbert = toothache (and apparently blindness)

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I actually feel really sorry for Barca now. Imagine going out there knowing you look like crap. Damn you Nike for making me give a damn about Barca!

  14. Christine May 22, 2012 at 7:07 am #

    That’s really bad 😀 but it seems like Nike changed it a little bit. LigaBBVA posted another picture on facebook where at least the pants are not orange anymore but yellow. But it still looks horrible!!

    Here’s a link where Marca shows the new kits:

    • drea May 22, 2012 at 9:30 am #

      Holy crap, it’s fer real? Gah, I almost feel bad for Xavi (which is really hard for me to do).

      • headbandsandheartbreak May 22, 2012 at 10:02 am #

        XAVI IS SUFFERING!!!! 😉

        • Laurean May 22, 2012 at 11:06 am #

          Even worse, can you imagine Pique in this? The awkward giant indeed!! Or maybe they have resorted to distraction tactics inorder to win? Our players will have to control their laugher and tears when they see these on! Lol

        • SierraGutierrez May 22, 2012 at 1:33 pm #

          I wish I could ‘like’ this! ❤

    • jellyace May 22, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

      And here are links to the inspirations of these new kits:

      I suspect it happened when Nike treated their kit designers to a seminar in Hawaii and they drove off to the North Shore and just had to stop at the famed Matsumoto’s for Hawaiian Shave Ice.

    […] to see the potential new Barca training shirts and almost spit out my coffee. Holy shit! When it debuted, I thought nothing could be worse than their infamous Tequila Sunrise kit, but this is […]
