Chicago Bulls, Villareal wish fans 'Happy Christmas' in their own way

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2010-12-21

'Tis the season for surprises, and as Christmas approaches, US basketball team the Chicago Bulls and Spanish football club Villareal have made comical video clips for their fans.

What do the Chicago Bulls’ Joachim Noah and Spanish football team Villareal’s striker Giuseppe Rossi have in common? They both appear in funny Christmas video clips produced by their respective clubs for their fans.

In this first video, the French-American Noah appears along with his teammates to sing a basketball-themed version of "The 12 Days of Christmas". The Bulls player apparently didn’t inherit his dad singer’s genes. Fortunately, in 2011, the Bulls will likely fare better on the courts than on the stage.

In Villareal’s Christmas video clip, Italian striker Giuseppe Rossi invites his teammates to his place for a quiet night in. But their passion for football becomes too hot to handle. Eventually Rossi’s livingroom becomes a football pitch, and even Santa -- dressed up in Villareal’s trademark yellow -- joins the party.
