Dirty Tackle

The Dutch national team goof around with toy birds in odd supermarket ad

Dirty Tackle

In anticipation of Euro 12, Dutch supermarket chain C1000 produced a music video featuring stars of the Netherlands team and hundreds of the little birdie toys it's offering fans/potential shoppers.

During the video, you'll see Nigel De Jong's teammates sticking the orange toys to his head, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar almost eating one (but it wasn't made of grass, so he didn't), someone putting three on a kebab stick and grilling them, plus Arjen Robben sticking them to his backside and bending over. In other words, it's...strange.

And now we must wait and see if these things horrify the world by bursting out of Robin van Persie's chest during a group stage match.
