they can convince me to do anything

This is one of the many, many talents of the players of La Roja – being able to pack so much fun and laughs into six seconds.  This video was made to support the Spain/Portugal bid to host the 2018 or 2022 World Cup.  I think it was shot back in March of this year (before the friendly against France on March 3), because that was the last time some of the players here (Marcos Senna, Álvaro Negredo, Dani Güiza, Diego López) made an appearance with La Roja.

Favorite moments: Dani jumping up and down to be seen, because he was behind the tall Pepe and the even taller Diego; Sergio supporting himself on Villa and Joan’s shoulders; Cesc’ gestures (the only one to make any); Torres’ blond hair (because I’m so used to seeing him with his natural hair color now) and how he sits there for one more beat after everyone else has already gotten up; how Albiol (who else?) is the last one to finish speaking; Marcos Senna’s half-hearted thumbs up; and the “vamos” and cheers once filming is completed.  And why are they sitting on a fountain?

See, I told you the players have a talent for making any moment, even the most mundane, fun!

I had to watch it several times before I could figure out what they were saying, because they weren’t very coordinated with their speech.  They say, “apoyamos la candidatura ibérica” (we support the Iberian bid).

And Álvaro Arbeloa tweeted about it, making fun of their inability to all speak at in unison…

“Haha, what coordination!  RT: The players of La Roja with the Iberian bid.  Send your videos of support.”

The players also supported the effort by posing with a t-shirt bearing the logo of the bid.

See what Cristiano Ronaldo did to help out here or here.

Let’s go Iberia!

  1. i wuvvvvv you unaaa! thank you so much for this!

    was laughing so hard at poor dani…somehow he looks like he’s about to pee jumping up and down like that! =)

    oh i wish they made them retake this (like, for 5 times. or more) coz those 6 seconds are. Not. ENOUGH.

  2. oh my gosh, jumping Dani is the cutest thing ever! :)

  3. Haha this is hilarious! Just one more way they remind me of a group of adorable, antsy schoolboys!

    Álvaro is sadly right about their coordination. Thankfully, it’s much better on the pitch!
