Iker, Xavi, César, Jordi & Diego: That’s One Hell Of A Boy Band.

7 Apr

Several members of La Roja (and Diego Costa – yes, I know he’s a member but I’m still bitter about it) appeared in Maldita Nerea’s (in association with Iberdrola) video for Buena Energía. The team joins the band on stage for a jam session. Xavi is on drums (appropriate because he’s always banging on about something), Diego Costa on bongos (also appropriate since he’s always pounding on something – usually one of our players) and a tambourine trio comprised of Iker, Jordi & César.  Xavi & César are the most relaxed and natural – they look like they’re having a ball. Diego Costa looks like…himself. Jordi seems pretty energetic and spends quite a bit of time with his arm around the singer which takes away from the need to stay on beat. And Iker? Well, Iker is the most awkward Tracy Partridge ever. There’s lots of off beat clapping, etc. Bless.

I’m always surprised when I see Xavi let loose and be fun like this. He even rocks a little duck face groove action in there. I daresay it’s rather adorable and when is the last time you heard me say that in regards to this man?! Iker even takes off his mental grandpa cardigan a bit  toward the end and has some fun.  He’d probably much rather be home changing Martin’s nappies, no doubt, but he can console himself with the fact that Martin will be looking back at these videos in about 15 years and laughing his arse off at his old man.  🙂

    Are we ignoring the way that they just kind of completely ignore Costa?

    Cesar is adorable. I hate that he plays for Chelsea *sigh*

    Xavi having fun… Who is he? And what did he do with the spiteful robot?

    Poor Iker. Absolutely no rhythm

    Iker looks like the gentleman he is but secretly wants to stab a pencil in his eye to get out of the video ASAP.

    OH MAN! Just thought of a great idea: put a drunk Iker in a Big Flow video. NO! BETTER YET: put a stone cold sober Iker in a Big Flow video. Magic!

      Awkwardness at its most handsome. I need to stop replying to my own comments.

      Oh, I would LOVE to see sober Iker in a Big Flow video (preferably the last in da club one). He would look so wildly uncomfortable. LMAO!

      Actually, sober Iker and drunk Xabi in a Big Flow video for maximum hilarity!
