La Roja ‘Nos esforzaremos como vosotros’ Movistar Commericial Released

27 Apr

Well, that didn’t take long. La Roja released a teaser for this on Friday and the full ad yesterday. It’s quite lovely. Each of the team members goes and works a “normal”job. Iniesta in a kitchen, Juanfran & Santi as gardeners, Pepe Reina at a day care (LOL! Very appropriate!) and Xabi as an orderly at a nursing home. Conveniently,  unamadridista did a translation over on con la roja so you can pop over there for more background on the ad.

A Little La Roja Role Play?

25 Apr

Oh, what will they think of next?! La Roja is going to do a little undercover action (Unfortunately, not “under the covers” action). This spot is a teaser for an upcoming commercial. What do you think of Xabi with black hair and a beard? He’s kinda rocking the “My Sexy Professor For English Lit 101” look, isn’t he? Oh impart to me the wisdom of Shakespeare, Professor Alonso!  (All. Night. Long.) Can’t wait to see the full ad.

Lend Your Heart To La Roja

14 Apr

Cruzcampo has a new campaign called #PrestanosTuCorazon (Lend Your Heart) for the World Cup. The idea is to send in the crest from your national team uniform to create a giant flag that will go to every Spanish National Team game. Good god, do these people not realize how much kits cost?! Anyhow, more info here and you can watch Sese & several other members of La Roja in the ad. (Anyone care to translate the ad? If so, please do in the comments)
