Arsene’s Getting A Little Assistance

3 Nov

I am weeping this Puma ad. Arsene Wenger’s battles with his coat zipper are legendary, so Puma decided to help him out. Just brilliant. He’s being a really good sport about it  but why not? Own your inability to zip your coat, Arsene, we’ve all been there! It brings to mind my other fave Arsene representation.

James Husbands, the artist who does the Sexy Football calendar had this bit of Wenger hilarity on the 2014 calendar. Arsene was Mr. October. I just spent the entire month looking at this and laughing every time I saw it.

I really hope he does a calendar again this year. The pictures are hysterical.

    It’s puffy coat season! (just now watching AVB wearing a puffy coat) So what was Puma’s solution for Arsene’s Puffy Cpat Problem? Was it a bigger zipper handle?

    Funny…but true. I recently got a new jacket and the zipper if awful. Too late to return it and it was damn expensive.


    Love his puffy coats, they gotta put one in a museum or something
