I hate calling it anything other than football, but for the sake of having an alliteration in the headline, I’ll make an exception this time.
I also am not quite excited about promoting a video of rich, famous and incredibly well-built men my age flexing their perfectly chiselled abs due to the inevitable depression-induced stravation diet it will send me in to.
But alas, when your editor’s computer screen gets all fogged up over said hunks, you have to make an exception again. And I could really do with a starvation diet right now anyway.
Vanity Fair recently did a photoshoot with some of football’s hottest stars wearing nothing but “country undies”, and we’re talking ’bout guys like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Michael Ballack (whom Nasa is totally obssessed about. Did I mention that he sat at the table next to us when I was at Stamford Bridge? Well, he did =P ) and wait for it…… Didier Drogba.
I know, I know… Most of my male readers would throw up at the idea of looking at The Drog in nothing but a pair of boxer briefs. As if the sight of him writhing around on the pitch every week isn’t sickening enough…
So I guess this post goes out to the ladies. All the awesome ladies out there who’ve faithfully gone with your boyfriends or partners to the pubs or mamaks every weekend, watching those eleven men chase a ball around the park even if you could’ve been home watching Sex and the City repeats or attending Lady Gaga theme parties - this one’s for you.
You didn’t have to, but you did. So here’s something in return – click on the link below to check out the behind the scenes videos for the Vanity Fair World Cup photoshoot:
P.S. Please take note that this video does not absolve our male readers of their responsibility to accompany partners on shopping sprees, chick flicks and Kelly Clarkson concerts.
