Getafe CF Readies its Fans for 2010/11

5 Aug

Getafe CF, famous for their absolutely ridiculous Burger King shirt sponsor, are at it again. This time it’s a cartoon video for supporters to rally around the club this season. Sounds like it could be the theme for a Spanish Sesame Street knockoff. In any event, another clever marketing tactic for Getafe who finished in 6th place last season – the highest in the club’s history in La Liga.

Translation is as follows:

“An optimist in a pessimistic world found some sad people (they are standing on an unemployment line). He saw how they weren’t smiling and said, ‘This coming season we will stay in the top division.'”

“Four optimists in a pessimistic world found…[a bunch of sad looking kids losing their hair?]  They saw how they weren’t smiling and said, ‘The entire country saw our game against Bayern.'” (referring to their UEFA Cup exit in 2008 at the hands of Bayern Munich when they conceded 2 goals in extra time)

“Various optimists in a pessimistic world found a bunch of people sweating in excess. They saw how they weren’t smiling and said, ‘We already have 2,000 new members of the club'” (in Spain, the fans can become “socios” which gives them a membership card and right to vote in elections)

“Thousands of optimists in a pessimistic world found…(looks like some ugly, unhappy whales).  They saw how they weren’t smiling and said, ‘We are just coming off the best season of our lives.'”

“All of the supporters in a pessimistic world found everyone else on the planet. They saw how everyone else wasn’t smiling and said, ‘We are going to continue making history.'”
