Juventus Unleash Frightful Halloween Mock-Ups: Pirlo As Joker, Pogba As Darth Maul, Bendtner As Frankenstein, Etc (Photos)

By Chris Wright

As far as we know it all started last year, but Juve’s Halloween mock-ups of their players was so popular that they’ve decided to cook up a fresh batch ahead of All Hallow’s Eve 2013 with, among other, Andrea Pirlo re-imagined as The Joker, Gigi Buffon as Freddy Krueger, Paul Pogba as Darth Maul and Nicklas Bendtner (rather fittingly) as a senseless, borderline-immobile lump of grey flesh…

They’re all pretty great, but littleĀ Seb Giovinco as Pinhead is a personal favourite!

P.S. Before anyone gets clever with the whole ‘Frankenstein/Frankenstein’s monster’ thing in the title – we’re fully aware of the mistake. We just don’t care.

    Scuse my ignorance, but is Pogba actually playing regularly for Juventus?

    I would laugh if photoshopping his face onto Darth Maul’s body is the first time they’ve been able to put him to use.

    In the Halloween spirit, here is a link to photos of USWNT stars Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux dressed up for the holiday. As a bonus, there is an Olympic theme to their costumes! Compelling viewing compared to the Juve boys.

    Oooh thanks Chris

    Buffon is superb, as always.

    @Redskywalker: Pogba started against Catania at the weekend. He’s appeared in 5 of 9 league matches, most of those recently. I’d say he’s first choice behind the starting three of Pirlo – Marchisio – Vidal, and with Pirlo’s age and added Champions League duties he’s in line for a good share of time.

    I’d love to see Buffon come out to meet a corner with Freddy Kreuger hands, especially in the Inter match this weekend.

  6. Captain Obvious says:

    Should’ve dressed Bendtner as a proper striker if they were going for fantastical costumes

  7. lordrt says:

    Pirlo as the Joker is just class, and Gigi rocks as usual

    @ Captain Obvious

    It’s Halloween, not April Fool’s Day!

  9. Bruno says:

    Pogba was man of the match this morning against Bologna. Set up the first goal then scored the winning second. Italian press is raving about him
