Bizarre Advert Sees Getafe Enlist ‘Rocky The Suicidal Koala’ To Help Sell Season Tickets (Video)

By Chris Wright

As mascots go, ‘Rocky the Suicidal Koala Bear’ sounds about as friendly as ‘Adolf the Anti-Semitic Guide Dog’ or ‘Clyde the Violently Sado-Masochistic Fire Safety Hedgehog’ – though that doesn’t seem to have stopped La Liga side Getafe from pinning all their hopes on the manically depressed marsupial to shift their season tickets for next campaign…

Does anyone have the foggiest what’s going on here? No, me neither.

For the record, here’s Getafe’s altogether more understated effort from last season, which features ‘ickle David Silva hatching from an egg and a man with two faces dancing around a carpark…

Thanks to Pies reader Miguel for the tip-off.

    someone please explain, this is fucking weird

  2. Ceezer says:

    that’s the most fucked ad campaign ever…lol at the koala on the bathroom floor.

  3. dazza says:

    It’s a bit far fetched as I’m pretty sure Koalas can’t play the piano

  4. Steve says:

    As far as I can tell. The koala shaves his balls (appears to nick them to, bit of blood on the floor. I think). Jerks off to a lamp and tries to top himself?

  5. big papi says:

    The fan says that this season hes gone through every feeling possible and can no longer feel anything. Rocky then goes on to conmiserate in song as his owner only puts him on the bed with the rest of the stuffed animals while she sleeps with other guys which is why hes trying to top himself. It ends with the slogan “empty of feelings until the next season.”
