The Spanish Like Their Soccer Teams


Spanish La Liga team Getafe FC just barely escaped relegation last season thanks to goal differential, and are essentially the San Diego Padres of Spanish soccer. While the product on the field may not measure up, the marketing staff is doing yeoman’s work coming out with some bat-shit crazy ads. I don’t speak Spanish, but I don’t need to to appreciate the insanity that is these ads.

For instance, there is this one, featuring some iconic (Christian) religious icons and ends with the classic tagline, “my team comes first.” Take that Yahweh and Jesus! Sure burning at the stake might have been bad for Joan of Arc, but think of the joy of rooting on a miserable soccer team! If Jesus were alive today he’d prefer you root for Getafe after all…

If that’s not enough, how about a man birthing an egg out of which comes a midget who yells, “DONDE!” Classic advertising technique…

Wouldn’t you love to see the Bengals whip out a similar campaign?
