take one, take two, take three…

December 28, 2010

Well, several days after its mysterious disappearance from Real Madrid’s youtube page, the bloopers video has finally been released.  You can watch it here (the first video is the basketball and football teams, and the second video is just the football team).

The video is really quite funny and charming, and it’s great to see the boys’ personalities shine through.

(But I really didn’t want to know that the players had scripted lines – for example, you can see Mateos’ eyes moving as he reads the sign or the teleprompter or whatever they had back there – because I prefer to believe that they just said what they felt and weren’t “ordered” to say anything).

With that said, the highlights:

– Gonzalo saying that he was Esteban Granero

– someone complaining about Adán being too vain

– Mesut practicing his chat up line on Sami (because Sami of all people could correct him if he made his mistake, no?)

– anything that Marcelo and Cristiano do together; Marcelo does a very good Spanish accent

– no one knowing who would start, and Albiol and Kaká both being very polite with each other (tú tú tú tú is this year’s ni ni ni ni)

– Xabi and Esteban being too classy to do anything wrong or remotely embarrassing

– note to file in mind: Pedro León is not ticklish in the stomach area

– Arbeloa requesting more and more takes

– Adán’s mobile ringing at the exact wrong moment

– and of course the overuse of the word “tío”

    I love the moment when Arbeloa is doing a strange face to Canales, and he answer `como si nada´ “Empiezo yo no?”
    They are incredibly funny aren’t they?

      I agree, he’s so enticing!

    Funny! They look adorable, especially Marcelo and Crispy. Ozil is also super cute asking Sami if he says things correctly;-)

    I agree to ignore the fact that they had to read the lines, come on, how hard is to say one sentence, come on!;-)))

    Also, I don;t believe I am saying this, but Jose Mourinho TSO looks really fine there, oh.

      No, no, NO! I completely disagree with your final statement!!! Just, NO!
      *guilty face of denial*…

      ..Should we be scorned for this?.. 😦

      • December 29, 2010 01:11

        Only TSO can properly express scorn, so I think in this case we’re safe. 😉

        I do not even feel guilty. hahah

      Right?! Ever since he’s started to play more often, I began to notice him on a regular basis.
      Oh Alvaro.. *fans self* — lol okay, he hasn’t tipped the scales that far yet. 😆

    I’m really surprised you, a Spanish speaker, call what Albiol said last year ‘Ni ni ni ni ni ni’

    • December 28, 2010 23:04

      Because it doesn’t translate well into English, and that’s what it sounds like to non-Spanish speakers… but to clear things up for everyone, Albiol is actually saying “nene.”

    this is my first time commenting and Una i LOOOOOOOVE everything you do so much and check your site religiously 🙂 i absolutely love this team and to be honest i enjoyed the video of the bloopers more than the actual greetings in the original lol. i feel like this shows all of their personalities so well. marcelo and cris goofing off constantly while xabi and granero keep it calm and classy haha. thanks for having such an amazing blog Una!

    also does anybody know if sergio’s charity match will be played on the la sexta website like iker’s? i checked the website but couldn’t find a time…

    Very cute – hardly understood a word, but it was still amusing to watch them – and more fun than the “proper” Christmas greetings.

  19. December 28, 2010 20:35

    lol tu,tu,tu,tu is the new ni,ni,ni,ni !!!!!!!!!!! ay chori

    I really think the others stood next to the camera man. For example Alvaro throwing that paper ball towards Albiol. Or Pepe making funny faces so that Marcelo & Cris laugh out loud. Or someone walking infront of the teleprompter to hide the writing from Pipita. Haha Garays comment: continue, this is an improvisation. Just so love these guys! Iker can just roll with the eyes when he watches this crazyness! LOL

    Pipitas intro was so funny… hola soy Esteban Granero… yeah sure 😀

      This is what I imagined happening to when I saw Cris/Marcelo’s greeting posted on Cris’ FB page.

      I suspect you’re right about the others too. These boys know how to have fun. How can you not love em?

      Sami & Ozil…that was soo cute!

      But I do have to say that Marcelo & Cris’ was the best for me.

        remember Álvaro posting a pic of Albiol & Kaka on his twitter? He must have been there.

        And Granero maybe walked infront of the teleprompter before which caused Pipita to say that he was Granero.

        Oh and I cracked up over Mous laugh in the middle!!! LOL

    SO many good moments in this years bloopers vid! For me Albiol topped last years vid & did so again with his “tú tú tú tú” haha

    I love how even Sami giggles a bit at Ozil’s spanish, he has such a cute little froggy voice 😛

    ANYTHING with Cris & Marcelo is always entertaining, the faces they make kill me!

    Carvalho’s loud burst of laughter surprised me but it was hilarious, I cant stop watching the video!!! 😉

    Sergio laughing + Iker’s pondering face=ADORABLE

    I love how there’s a smattering of applause once Mesut and Sami get it [almost] right.

    I do hope Mesut’s mother makes him cut his hair over the holidays.
