Crystal Palace: Call Them Crystals

Did you know Championship side, Crystal Palace, has cheerleaders, Kickettes?

Welp, now you do.

Used as a pretty obvious marketing tool to gets idiots to renew their season tickets, the squad features extremely flammable hair extensions and nail acrylics. Lots of ‘em.

    Gah, I couldn't even watch the whole thing…

    hahahaha any woman who would not go to a football match because of this is forgetting that they get to watch the men run around for 90 minutes and possibly see them swap shirts at the end. Its times like these im glad im a female and get to ogle talented footballers instead of brainless plastic cheerleaders.

    Lighten up it's just a bit of fun and it's getting people talking about the club, which is exactly what they want!

    If they do lose female fans over this then they are obviously very fickle and were never big fans of the club anyway, I know I wouldn't even think about not supporting my club because of a campaign featuring women nicer looking than myself!

    LOL plenty of the cheerleaders are butterfaces..*I can't help being catty*

    Why on earth are they wearing bikinis inside a football stadium? Granted, I only have American football as a reference for cheerleaders, but they should definitely be wearing only some sort of official cheerleading uniform (however scanty) inside the stadium.

    p.s. I'm sick to death of that "Call Me Maybe" song too, but Cookie Monster's cover cracks me up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qTIGg3I5y8

      I found that video a few days ago and love it (the Cookie Monster cover, obviously). Only Sesame Street can make something like this tolerable. Long live the muppets!

    I was going to say the same thing about the Dolphins… and also, at least it makes a lot more sense for them to be running around in bikinis on South Beach.

    i'm too embarrassed to watch the whole thing.. i don't know who i'm more embarrassed for – crystal palace, these girls, or myself for actually watching this.

    Miss USA also did it, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00yKww_BQ2I
    And at this point in time I hate this song even more

    Kinda pathetic that I know this… but… the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders already did this… like last month: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIfbghHdG1s

    The Dolphins were criticized, but their video went viral. I guess Crystal Palace is hoping for the same thing.

    That is just plain embarassing. Do these marketing geniuses realize for that every one pea-brained male that video might appeal to Crystal Palace will lose two female fans?

    Rubbish…

    That's just awful. Especially the slow motion water ballon. The people responsible for this should have much harder things thrown at them.
