Fantastic festive cheese

La Liga outfit Villarreal have thrown themselves wholeheartedly into the Christmas festivities by putting together this video featuring some of their star players.

The squad get together for a Christmas meal (naturally prepared by Italian chef Giuseppe Rossi – if the Spanish do one thing well, it’s stereotyping) and singsong.

But when a Christmas bauble bounces on the floor it is more than their footballing sensibilities can bear and they launch into a living room kickabout.

Santi Cazorla, Joan Capdevila, Gonzalo and Diego Lopez all get involved in the action, and Chef Rossi can’t resist his ball control skills matches his culinary prowess.

When Santa joins Santi and reveals himself to be a Villarreal fan, the party is really in full swing.

After all, aren’t cheesy virals the true meaning of Christmas?

    Cheesy and even a bit surreal. O_O;
    It’s going to be one of those videos that will be shown again 2 decades later as one of those things highlighting the oddities of mainland Europe.
