Milan And Bari Give Us The Strangest Pre-Match Warm-Ups Ever! (Video)

Talk about confusion.  I can only imagine that is what fans at the San Siro were faced with after watching what appeared to be players from AC Milan and Bari taking the pitch for warm-ups and performing some rather strange acts, whether it was dancing, swimming, limboing, or playing frisbee.

Despite bearing a striking resemblance to the player on the back of their jersey, the men who took the field prior to Saturday’s game were not actually the players themselves.  Instead, they were actors performing as part of a marketing campaign for the Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.

I’ll credit the paper for putting together this creative and entertaining scene, however, I can’t help but wonder why they wouldn’t use the real players.  After all, no one is better at acting than a footballer.
