Let's Unveil Our New Jerseys With A Choreographed Fashion Show!

Monday, July 28, 2008

This idea ranks just above Who's Now in the pantheon of stunts, but the more I watch it, the more I think it could be the worst of all time. Bayern Munich was unveiling their uniforms recently and they decided they would be best served by blasting some dramatic music and having women do a choreographed dance to it. From WL via SBB....

Good lord....that just kept going didn't it? Just when you thought it was over they just continued the crapiness. Seems like a lot of time wasted for a jersey that just says "T-Home" on it, but okay. I also loved the reaction of the reporters after the show as well. No one even moved. That was the epitome of fail right there.

did you want the reporters to applaud or throw dollar bills?
what did you expect them to do?
jump up with hands raised to ask questions?
what questions do you ask about uniforms?

Usually a reveal of a "soccer" (football) shirt is a big deal. Press coverage, national press if your team is big enough but that is the single most preposterous and pompous reveal I have ever seen. I hope the fans don't buy that shirt just so they aren;t associated with the interpretive dance.

What are the folks over at Allianz Arena going to do now with all those red lights that light up the facade of the stadium whenever Bayern plays a home game? I guess they wanted to stand out more in der Bundesliga, since to my knowledge nobody has a black home shirt in that league.
