behind the scenes…

June 2, 2012

The people over at Gustaff Choos have released a making of video from the photo shoot for next season’s kits and training/leisure clothes.  The photo session took place in March at the parking lot of Valdebebas, and this video allows us to see what other things the boys will be sporting next season.

What Iker’s wearing appears to be next season’s version of the “run onto the field, pose, take off and hand to the equipment manager jacket solely for marketing purposes,” as well as the obligatory puffy coat.

Speaking of puffy, here’s Mou’s puffy vest for next season.  With its bright yellow accents, as well as those on his sleeves, the referees will have no problem spotting him when he’s gesturing wildly on the sideline.  That’s probably not a good thing.  And will any of our rivals be walking away with this vest after a game next season?

This appears to be the training line.

No modeling post would be complete without an awkward pose from Karim.

I think that may be the orange jersey, but it looks coral, no?  And Calleti, for some reason, was wearing his shorts backwards.

Here’s the video; Kaká and El Pirata also make an appearance.

Two final thoughts: Xabi is such a pro at this modeling thing, and why is Iker willing to get shirtless for everyone except us?

      Maybe he is like Gambit from X-Men, shooting cards from his hands to attack his opponent. 😀

    Awesome making of video… 😀
    But question: Why is our pirate wearing a NEW shirt with the old number style on it? Some kind of rebellion? Some kind of pirate acitivity? 😉

    ohhh, gracias for this, una. it’s endearing to me how awkward karim is with his silly poses — it reminds me just how young he really is. 🙂

    xabi (and arbeloa, as always — i have to say it!) absolutely has a career outside football as a model. he just wears clothes so well and with such elegance — it’s effortless.

    i love that calleti’s shorts are on backwards! see, this is why you’re a genius — i never would have even noticed that!

    i wonder what the true colour of iker’s kit is. i’ve seen photos where it looks orange, red, coral, almost pinkish … truth be told, i don’t like any of them except red.

    mou’s puffy vest with those ugly neon patches is hideous! whomever thought lime green/neon yellow was a good accent colour for next year’s jerseys should be fired! bleargh!

    calleti was wearing the shorts backwards because it had the 2011-12 font on it, ( I Think ) 🙂

    yes, xabi is a natural at this modelling gig…and he looks really delicious enough to grace the covers of mags as he has done before…
