Blue Man Group

547433_10151547533717259_1788274960_nSo much stuff to get up on here today and I’ve spent the whole bloody day in meetings – playing catch up – here’s a brief one and then I’m off home where I’ll do the training post after catching my breath for a bit. Chelsea has a new promo campaign for their 2013-2014 kit. Tagline: “It’s blue. What else matters?”  What else matters in that they’ve covered some of our favorites (Oh hai there, Nando!) in blue body paint. Mama like.

Here’s the new ad – WARNING: Stuffed John Terry crotch shown repeatedly. Some of y’all might love that, more of you would probably say “Oh, so THAT’S the source of much of the drama. Feh!”

    Sorry you had such a long day Lozil! Just wanted to send you this link- more pix of this (huge ones of Nando) on Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2304607/Chelseas-stars-splattered-blue-paint-adidas-kit-advert.html

      Nando looks like a Michelangelo statue! So so pretty. I´m still hyperventilating.

        Even in all blue monochrome, Nando’s perfection still shines thru! I’ve bitten off my knuckles.

    As a Chelsea fan, I just love it! Really creative advert, and the behind-the-scenes footage is so cool! 🙂

    Much better than Barcelona kit!!!

      Oh, please! Even the kit of a 4th tier weekend team sponsored by their local barber is better than the Barcelona Tequila Sunrise kit!

    Consider this my signature on the petition to get Real Madrid to do the same with white paint.

    • Katie Ann April 5, 2013 at 6:39 pm #

      YES. This needs to happen. Now.

      Seconded

    • Rose April 5, 2013 at 9:54 pm #

      HELL YEAH! And let’s be honest RM’s would be hotter 😉

      • jellyace April 5, 2013 at 10:00 pm #

        Oh, gawd, yes…yes…YES!!!! I would faint!

    • Miss_F April 6, 2013 at 7:57 am #

      I’m thinking no paint… Just water or air…

    Sexy Care Bear in blue paint! I’m in! And why does my little brother (David Luiz) have such a hot body?!

    • Mehreh April 5, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

      He’s been holding out on us! Little coy tease.

    Blue…highlights certain areas quite well doesn’t it?

  9. Rose April 5, 2013 at 9:56 pm #

    I hope they gave whoever thought of this idea a promotion and a raise. Hell I’ll chip in. Well done advertising people, well done!

    I volunteer to help each and every one of them (ok maybe not John Terry) get cleaned up and remove all that blue from every nook and cranny!

    • Mehreh April 6, 2013 at 8:17 am #

      You’re too kind!

      • jellyace April 7, 2013 at 1:35 am #

        Oh, no, no no…I have very selfish ulterior motives here.
