West Brom Unveil Two New Signings Using Vine, Results Are Cringe-Inducingly Iffy

By Chris Wright

For reasons best kept to themselves, West Brom decided to officially unveil slightly underwhelming new signing, Australian full-back Jason Davidson, in fitting fashion yesterday: with a slightly underwhelming Vine clip posted on their official Twitter account.

In fact, during the final awkward seconds of the snippet, you can actually see the life drain from his eyes as his smile starts to waver…

Seemingly pleased with the results of the Davidson test, West Brom then used Vine once again to announce the signing of boingy boingy boingy Costa Rican midfielder Cristian Gamboa this morning, with similarly odd results…

Those smiles. Almost…painted on.

Personally, we’d probably just stick to the tried and true “scarf aloft in an empty stadium” photos from now on chaps.

    Could you specify why one of the stand out full backs in Eredivisie last term is an underwhelning signing Chris?

    *hangs head in embarrassment.

    Totally missed the point of Vine have WBA. This would have worked much better if they’d put together a proper 6 second montage of the player scoring a few goals for his old team, arriving at the gates of the hawthorns, putting the thumbs up or something and then holding up the shirt. Now that would have been cool and more “Vine”.
