Not The Scariest Thing I Saw Yesterday…

21 Mar

acae0750914b11e285b022000a9f15de_7Sorry, Shigs! I know the fact that Kaka’s wife has her own monogrammed set of super sharp knives is going to completely traumatize you (Carol was taking her culinary school exam) but honestly, it wasn’t the scariest thing that I saw yesterday. 

Was it Leo Messi’s new tattoo of his son Thiago’s handprints on his calf? I, personally, found that pretty terrifying – it looks like the baby hands are coming up from the ground and trying to drag him under. I guess I’ve seen too many horror movies… (Can I also just mention the semi-pR0n-y looking ‘getting tattooed’ shots? They’re just …awkward.)

No, the thing that scared the ever loving crap out of me yesterday were these Guti and Romina dolls. They’re part of Toyota Spain’s Superparents initiative. Their tag line is “Are you a superhero to your kids?” and here’s a little video. Anyhow the dolls are part of it.

Guti and Romina’s dolls are…challenging. Romina’s, in particular, is incredibly scary. Her doll looks like a man in drag – (perhaps a middle aged science teacher named Alvin who enjoys dressing in spandex/a blonde wig on weekends and calling himself Cyndee?)  – certainly doesn’t look like Romina. Sadly, Guti has been immortalized in doll form with that billy goat beard.

    Well after that post everything in my head says OH MY GOD !

    Well even though I really hate Messi I have to admit that the reason for the tattoo is really cute but DAMN ! that’s the creepiest tattoo I’ve ever seen !

    That post scared me for my whole lifetime 😉

      When I rhink of the tattoo I always think of the movie ‘Drag me to hell’ I think that would be a good cover 😉

      And it’s really a shame what they’ve done to Guti and Romina – they both are so pretty and these figures are so… well I fon’t find a word ^^

        Oh my gosh that’s the movie that comes to mind for me as well! Not a good thing since I’m terrified of horror films! It’s like an oxymoron because Messi looks like an innocent little badger, then you look down and there’s the creepy bloody hands wrapped around his leg lol. 😦 i think it’s scarier than Sergio’s world cup/penis looking tattoo. Great ideas but the placement looks a little off. Though I can imagine when the baby gets a little older, he would certainly have his hands wrapped around daddy’s leg!

          “Innocent little badger” hahaha

    Oh my god ! That tattoo and dolls look like halloween decorations, very scary…

    Ps I don’t know if it’s true but i heard that the reason why cristiano doesn’t have tattoos is because it prevents from donating blood…whatever the reason is, i always thought that he&tattoos just don’t match. I thought the same about leo,and now that horrible thing…

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 22, 2013 at 6:48 pm #

      Yeah, that’s true about Cristiano. Messi already had a tattoo before this one – it’s a picture of his mother’s face.

        I suspect Messi guilty pleasure secret tattoo idol is Sergio Ramos!

    MESSI HAS A KID!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! where have i been the past few months . Am i the only one who thought he was a virgin ? sex seems to “bad” for innocent looking Messi , well i guess my mom was right ‘its always the quiet ones’ .

  5. Ola March 22, 2013 at 6:13 am #

    Haha:) i can understand that you didn’t know-he hides little thiago so well that seeing his little hands or feet is very rare:-P so what about navas? He is the most religious (i mean, in spanish national team-he is all like “no thanks, i don’t drink because i am religious” etc) i was SO shocked when i found out he has a kid 😛

    Romina literally looks like a living Barbie. How did they mess that up???

    Ugh, that tattoo. It is hideous. Oh, and someone over at Dirty Tackle commented that in the photo where he’s lying down you can see the outline of…err…mini Messi. If that’s what I have to see every time that photo is posted I want as many other people to have to suffer along with me! I’m sorry. I can’t bear the burden alone.

    i love the idea behind messi’s tat, but… it looks like ronaldo’s grabby hands goal celebration. so the idea of messi having that on his leg for life is pretty wonderful.

    i also love that romi is in on wearing the monica bellucci D&G shirt that every guy on RM has. so much better than dsquared.

    haaaaa, carol has personalized knives. she’s so cute.

    Those little hands are tattooed on Messi’s left leg? That’s the same leg attached to the foot that was sculpted in gold and sold for kajillion dollars in Japan? Ew…that is scary.

    I pity Shiggers! Knowing that Caroline and her sharp personalized knives may visit Kaka’s brother in NY, may just be too much. Time to move to Florida, girl!

    jeepers creepers post!!!
    What if one knifes is stolen and turns out at a murder scene (to many CSIs, sorry), what will she do?? and the drag me to hell tattoo (horror movies), damn, jeepers creepers

    Messi’s tatto in theory is a cute idea, but the guy who did it butchered them by making them look creepy. Should have made them in a different color…interesting how they have the vatican in the
    background tv!

    Btw, Im sure Sergio will go get the Guti doll and hopefully start making clothes for it, hahha. Girl can dream.

    • headbandsandheartbreak March 22, 2013 at 6:56 pm #

      Well, he already plays Barbies with his niece Daniela, so why not bring along his Guti doll? 🙂

    I guess all of these dolls are creepy. Pepe Reina posted a shot with his doll on facebook and it makes his head look awful.

    HOOOLY SHIT this is one super-scary post.


  1. Well, Hello Dollies! | Of Headbands and Heartbreak... - March 30, 2013

    […] I’ve already made my feelings on these dolls abundantly clear. Guti decided that his and Romina’s dolls should “get to know each […]
