Celebrate Dutch Goals By Wearing the Players’ Faces
If you’re a Netherlands fan, then you’re going to like this. Even if you’re not, you’ll probably think it’s still a bit good, and wish your team could have one. Dutch design students Bas van de Poel and Daan van Dam have created a reversible Netherlands shirt, with the face of a celebrating player on the inside.
So if you’re wearing one of these when the player scores you just lift the front of the shirt over your head and suddenly you’re wearing that player’s celebrating face. Which sounds a little bit serial killer, but actually looks superb. Here’s how it works:
Oranje is about to score…
Goal Robin van Persie!
Goal Klaas-Jan Huntelaar!
Goal Wesley Sneijder! (I think)
Yes, it’s a gimmick. Readers with long term memories might also spot the similarities between this shirt and the Getafe Burger King shirt. But it’s a damn good gimmick. Imagine a crowd of people doing this after van Persie scores? It would be simultaneously terrifying and hilarious.
Unfortunately that’s not likely to happen at World Cup 2010, as this is a student concept from Bas & Daan. But you could just buy a Netherlands home jersey from our store and draw your own Robin van Persie on the inside.
