Shit Football Kits: Atletico Madrid’s Spider-Man 2 Abomination, 2004

Back from the clear blue yonder, it’s Pies’ Shit Kits series (pause for applause, and…continue) and we thought we’d wade back into the water with a ‘Grade A’ doozy of a stinker – namely, Atletico Madrid’s frankly disgusting ‘Spider-Man 2’ movie tie-in away strip from 2004…

‘But just how did this cobwebby monstrosity come about?’, I hear you cry.

You see, Atletico were sponsored by Columbia Pictures at the time, who would change the shirt logo every so often throughout the 2003/04 season to promote their latest godawful movie – e.g celluloid classics such as ‘Hitch’ and ‘White Chicks’…

Sigh, those were the days.

    hahahah :D yup, that ranks up there! but the players who have kids who are Spidey fans were probably happy

  2. Gibby says:

    Truly horrific !!! It looks like a target on the front. Valencia have a bat in their badge why didn’t they come out with a batman version at the same time ?

  3. MaxMad says:

    I love the idea of tying in the movies to kits, but they could do with a dash of creativity/skill.
    The “White Chicks” one is especially hideous, simply due to the fact that the font and colors in the box don’t mesh at all with anything.

    Spiderman 2 was at least an attempt to base the kit around the sponsor, not vice versa, which is a cool idea, but very corporate’ish.

    I bet Gutiérrez would love this!

    Is that actually real???

    Stupid yet funny at the same time.

    I wonder what Fletch would say……

  7. Tom K says:

    I need to inform you all that the “White Chicks” shirt says “Two Blondes with Chest Hair.”

  8. Tom Jones says:

    That’s a cool kit!

  9. S says:

    Hah, where can I obtain one of these?

    i think its a decent kit, and i rarely watch footy these days but id buy it, and thats the point, theyre gona sell a hell of alot more stock to people who arnt even football fans, making the team cash, and the fans will still buy it, sooooo not such a stupid kit when you think about it
