No Fear Here – Bring On The Pink!

3 Jun

BpOLeRiIcAAKBn0The day of the launch is upon us and pink it is (we’ve known this since mid-December but now it’s official). I like the dark lipstick pink of the kit. I thought it was going to be more in the range of Pepto-absymal. Shigs has given the color a thumbs up, so in my book, that’s all it needs for legitimacy. Continue reading

I’ve had some real life stuff that I needed to focus on over the past few days, so apologies for the lack of posting. Here’s just a few goodies. First up, the Behind The Scenes video for the Red One/Real Madrid collaboration. Continue reading

In The Pink

pink 1Remember back in December when we were talking about the rumored pink kits for next season? Well, the mothership pretty much confirmed it with the launch of the pre-order campaign. “No one can be neutral?” You don’t say! Continue reading

Nando-ed Up In Blue

7 Apr

Chelsea’s launched their 2014-2015 kit with the “Forever Blue” campaign which means we get to see plenty of players being subjected to all sorts of whimsy. Remember the blue body paint last year? This year, they made blue statues out of the players’ most memorable Chelsea moments. Which means they had to cover them in plaster. FUN! There are two “Behind The Scenes” videos after the jump.

Real Fan. Real Energy. Real Madrid.& It’s Samba Time!

6 Nov


Remember when we had our third kit launch? Well, here’s a little video of the Adidas contest winners who got to meet Marcelo, Benz & G-Money. I can’t believe they didn’t take advantage of Karim’s special skill set and let him take that elevator selfie! Continue reading

Real Energy. Real Madrid. (Or The Return of Bad!Hair Benzema)

4 Nov

There’s a new Adidas spot today and while it’s awesome and motivating and all that, it also reminds us of that dead thing that was living on Benzema’s head for a few months. C’mon, Real Madrid, let Fluffy rest in peace! Can’t you digitally remove that head critter?! I don’t want to reminisce about the team’s hair Dark Ages. What’s next? Pictures of the Bleach Job of Horror? That shiz was like the Voldemort of dye jobs – it should never, ever, ever be spoken of lest it return.

(Oh, and HALA MADRID!)

"We are so obviously being punished."

“We are so obviously being punished.”

Wow, they look super enthusiastic, don’t they? Sorry I’m getting to this so late – long day at work. The new kits are very…orange. I like orange, don’t get me wrong, but that is A LOT of orange. Shigs will be delighted – it’s her fave color, but seriously, isn’t that a bit too much…ORANGE? Continue reading
