Oranje: Football is War
The Dutch national team have appeared in a rather compelling photo shoot for the newspaper AD and their European Cup supplement. Above, Edwin Van Der Sar in full mudwear regalia.
When the photographer for the shoot, Erwin Olaf, was asked how he described the shoot to the players, he said:
“That they would be portrayed as lust objects, that there were sexual and erotic elements and that they would be completely covered in mud.“
Mr. Olaf, your succinct and eloquent words on the importance of objectifying footballers has made us quite certain we would like to marry you and have your babies.
Olaf also said that the reason why the players were made to look like gladiators is because football is “war”.
