Real Madrid: Product Shilled & Startled

Alvaro? Kickette Jnr alert. Three o’clock. Image via facebook.

Scaring the bejeezus out of prospective customers is an innovative marketing technique, and one that seems to be working marvellously for adidas. When David Beckham popped up on hapless punters minding their own business in a photobooth before the London Olympics in July, it’s believed (by Kickette staffers) that shirt sales increased by 300%, simply because people were so bewildered they didn’t know how else to react but to hand over their hard earned cash.

Multiply that mortification by 300, and you can imagine how the above Real Madrid fans felt when Iker Casillas, Xabi Alonso and Alvaro Arbeloa casually popped into a fan preview of their tasty green third kit. We’d like to think we’d have retained our casual, women-about-town demeanours as well as those fans, but let’s not kid ourselves here. At least three of our staffers would have stripped on their own accord.

What about you? Cool, calm and polite? Or hot, bothered and basically nude?

    I would've touched the Alonso beard, too. It's pure sex, I tell you. ;-)
    I missed Sergio though…

  3. Agnes Wonka says:

    Where were CR7 and Karim B?

  4. chay says:

    I would probably try to remain cool and calm and polite, but the minute they were about to leave, I probably would lose it. «¡Lleváme!»

    The thing is, I wouldn't know whose leg I would be wrapping my body around, they're all so bloody hot!

    In my dreams, I'd be rugby tackling Alvaro Arbeloa and dragging him to the nearest empty room to erm…chat….in reality, I'd probably just faint.

    Alvarrrro……even his name is sexy….yum.

    I too, missed The Ramos here but oh yum, those who did show up about take my breath away! How very generous of you to share this, Kickette!!! You never, ever, ever, ever disappoint!

    PS ~ not crazy about the kit either but, there's a lot to be said about that "green the color of envy" truth!! :-D

    That little girl is awesome… She got in there with the Iker hug and got up feeling the Ginger Beard… that girl is my new idol

  9. Estelle says:

    Kickette, I'd like to share this video of Alvaro Arbeloa <3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciyHcV6J_Lw&fe….

  10. Estelle says:

    Wow I went nuts almost cried when that girl ran to hug Iker! Too adorable!

  11. Sarah, Madrid says:

    See I hated the kit and still do, but the way addidas marketing it, I want hug from Iker, touch xabi's beard and look closely @ arbeloa smile <3 so I want too if THIS happens.
    The cutie little girl is my hero that's me and yeah add the marriage proposal part.

  12. JaneSpotting says:

    Iker…Alvaro..and even Alonso..yes, I would have soooo pounced. What a delightful trio

  13. Carvivlie says:

    That little girl may be in Iker's arms but it is obvious she has eyes only for Alvaro–an underestimated hottie!

  14. gin_in_teacups says:

    I'd have flung myself into Iker's arms like that little cutie pie in the video. Although somehow I think it might not have been as well received.

    The adults in this video are impressively collected about the whole thing. I would cry, try to hug them, and then demand to know where Sergio was (ie: freeze, say nothing, and possibly hide behind some shirts. Nothing turns me into a 13 year old quite like Real Madrid).

  15. Madridista says:

    I'd be frozen in shock at first and end up grinning from ear to ear with my brains firmly switched off. Too much hotness to process at one shot.

    I'd probably kick myself for not stripping off hours later when everything is over. :(

  16. Miss_F says:

    I think the green kit looks nice :)

  17. Thea says:

    Green is the colour of envy…………….just sayin'
