Product Shill Pose Off: David Villa v Karim Benzema for Adidas Tango 12

Images: Adidas Football.

Hallelujah, UEFA Euro 2012 has officially kicked off. Many games will be played, many fine men will wear shorts whilst running.  Stamina and shorts in the summer is always a good thing. And with so many matches and players to choose, where should you focus your valuable time and attention?

For the time being, we say David Villa (Spain) and Karim Benzema (France), who are two of the hands and faces modeling the new Adidas Tango 12 – the official match ball of Euro 2012.

Since we needn’t really continue as y’all know the drill, let’s get to analysing.

Did Patricia forget to wrap up his leftovers from dinner at the end of the night or something? Yeesh, what on Earth has gotten into David Villa? That is not a bitchface nor is it a side eye and his barnet is beginning to take on a wig-like look.

Though if you’re a glass half full type of Kickette then you’ll enjoy this advice from a good mate of ours: ’David Villa’s looking pretty moody… and we can all enjoy that!’


As it’s been recently discussed, France has a wide range of delectables to choose from, depending on your personal preferences. For the sake of this pose off, we’ll take Karim.

Unlike the Soulpatch Sire, Benzema actually made somewhat of an effort in his modeling shot, seemingly spending more than four minutes getting ready for his close-up. He also avoided a full teeth smile, much to our benefit. He’s a healthy shade of happy and we appreciate him letting the actual product take centre stage for a change.


So who wins the battle of the match balls, fellow Kickettes? Is it too obvious that we’re voting for Karim since he looks a wee bit more put together than David?

Regardless, we like to think that these two are are much more high maintenance than these pictures show. Can’t you just mentally picture the two of them fighting for mirror space whilst primping to the latest LMFAO single?

  2. Julia says:

    El Guaje all the way.

  3. boston79 says:

    I'll take some Karim, all day, every day.

  4. sıla says:

    I am a big fan of Real Madrid, but I think Benzema is very impulsive type.

  5. FabregasPublicist says:

    I hope you made this like a Top Model judging. It would be lot more funnier. Just suggesting!

  6. earidurt says:

    whatever benz is selling, i'm buying………in bulk. he is just that hot.

  7. IrishBlue says:

    Ok so it's not his best photo ever but come on, at the end of the day it's still David Villa! Benzema does zero for me anyway so it's an easy choice!

  8. Agnes Wonka says:

    Karim looks waaaaay hotter!!!! I mean, he IS hot!
    David Villa used to be so sexy, he's defo going through a 30-year-old crisis :S

    • chay says:

      i think he's just going through really bad hair, just like cesc is going through really bad hair. What is up with barça making hair go bad? But actually, nando's hair is really bad and he's in the uk, so maybe it's a spanish thing. But then again, i can't buy my own argument because not all the spaniards have bad hair. So what's the catch?

      Enquiring minds want to know! :-P

  9. Shelley says:

    I think Benzema is sleazy and not in the least bit attractive. I doubt he'd fancy me either though as I am over the age of 16.

    • faela says:

      Wow, really unnecessary comment and not funny at all…

      • jeanxx says:

        Why? it's the truth. I'm sorry some Benzema/Madrid fans are in denial or whatever, but facts are facts, and the fact is that guy had sex with an underage prostitute (or more, what do I know really).

        • Sarah, Madrid says:

          He fact that he was just a witness in the case is very true too! What denial, the guy is hot for some people, some is not that much, everyone is entitle to her/his opinion lol

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      Don't like him? ok, more Benzi for us….

    • DebS says:

      Where's that darn "thumbs down" icon? :

  10. JaneSpotting says:

    Oh Karim..should be on the hottie list. He is uber fine..and way sexy. Plus wowee what nice size pix. I have a new screensaver. Merci

  11. JCF says:

    Only on between these two would Benz's expression qualify as 'happy' and Villa is very 'el Guaje' here. I'm willing to give David the benefit of the doubt in that I'm sure he HAD an epic bitchface on before the photographers tried to coax him into something different…this ended up being the compromise.

  12. Rachael says:

    Villa! Benzema’s penchant for under age girls is not attractive whatsoever. Short memories…

  13. Futball says:

    Madrid Men > Barca Boys

  14. Football says:

    Madrid men > Barca Boys

  15. Natalie says:

    I like Spain a lot but Karim wins this one!

  16. Taz says:

    Seriously, Karim is like a totes new person and player this season! Last season he was always SO downtrodden (but still verrry cute) looking, this season he's looking just plain fooooiiine. Always have love for the King of Bitch Face but Karim's got my vote here :)

  17. Mrs Q.Borri says:

    Benzema, all the way! Although think about it, Adil in that same pose with his smoking hot face and gorgeos big handsome body, it would have work better if instead of Benzema… just saying! :D

  18. Gladys says:

    Sorry Daveed, but I vote Benz. He looks like he's giving you the ball in exchange for some sort of "favor" (or maybe that's just my fantasy…sorry).

  19. Kristina says:

    Two of my fav's in la Liga! I like the red outfit better, but somebody should have woken Villa up for the shoot. I have definitely seen better pics of Karim but I'm gonna go for him.

  20. Emily says:

    Benzema looks a bit more inviting, no? He at least has a hint of a smile on his face.

  21. Sarah, Madrid says:

    La Roja villa, btw his expression totally read " did you take your shot, am bored", but Benzema is looking super hot and smoking!!

    I like them both, but Benz is working it better!

  22. Alyssa says:

    I love Spain and I'm pretty ambivalent about France but BENZEMA ALL THE WAYYYY!!

  23. My god – please tell me the Villa isn't catching the Barca hair flu now too?! NO!!!
