Tum-bel?

7 Jun

OMG remember the Adidas ads from yesterday? You’ll get a serious laugh out of this one. Do I even need to mention how freaking fabulous Xabi is with his pronunciation & that side eye? Ooh-we! I seriously can’t get past Iker’s “tum-bel” and then to have it immediately followed by Di Maria’s “tum-blir?” it’s just killing me. I’m gonna go watch it 30 more times now!

    I’ve honestly watched the beginning of this video 10 times! Hilarious!!! Haha Xabi is so dreamy and Robin is so sexy! Iker is adorable oh my god and Angel too. Haha Sandro is so funny! Gotta love footballers! 🙂

      I’ve been laughing like an idiot since I found the video! I love how Iker looks around like “I got it right didn’t I?” haha

        Haha I know it was so cute! Toom-bel? I died! The only thing that could’ve made this better was Sergio trying to say it too!

          Ugh they never include Sergio in the English speaking fun! I don’t know why 😦 When I first watched this, it reminded me so much of his “Hellow I yam Serhio Ramo, Real Madreed playa” vid! We need some more of that!

            Haha omg I love that video! It’s so cute when they all try to speak English! Ah I loved when Ozil did for a slight second in an interview! Real needs to do a thank you to fans all around the world and it needs to be in English and soon!

              That is SUCH a good idea, I wish they’d put something in English together. I’m sick of subtitles 😦

    am i hearing things, or does xabi say it with an english accent? i’ve listened to it about 50 times (any excuse, eh?) and i swear it sounds like he’s saying it with an english accent. which sounds amazing, by the way!

    speaking of amaysing, iker … you are too cute. “toombel?”

      There definitely is an anglified air to his accent when he speaks english. I really enjoy hearing accents in people of other nations when they speak a second language. Like a Polish person, naturalized to America, who lives in the south will have a southern twinge that floats through the still natural Polish accent. I listen very closely for these small details. I’m glad you mentioned it!

      The way he said certainly did sound very suave! It seemed so unreal. I expected that pronunciation to come from an actual Londoner. Oh Xabi, he never fails to surprise me 🙂

      Totally heard an English accent there as well. And seeing as I’ve been an Anglophile my whole life, it gave me major feels. It’s damn sexy. And the sideye is amazing.

      I definitely told my friend that Xabi sounded scouse when he said it. haha That entire video had me giggling like a little girl…
