Rossi, Spies & Stewart in Ghastly Sweaters

Tuesday, December 15, 2009
Ever wondered what the disembodied heads of Yamaha factory riders Valentino Rossi, Ben Spies and James Stewart would look like on ghastly Christmas sweaters?

Happy holidays from those handsome Yamaha racing boys.
Who hasn’t! And now, thanks to the good folks at Yamaha, our Christmas wish was answered when the factory’s industry holiday card came in the mail.

As you can see, it features the current Yamaha racing godhead transposed into a holiday scene straight out of Grandma’s imagination, replete with teddy bear themed sweater on Spies and Rossi clutching Mr. Pookims. You can practically hear the Perry Como Silver Bells playing in the background.

We assume credit has to be given to the same people that came up with Yamaha’s mockumentary ads earlier this summer. Hey, Yamaha, hang on to those guys, as you seem to have the cleverest marketers in the business right now.

Kitsch, corny, self deprecating and three of the greatest riders of all time. It'll be a long time before any manufacturer has three such great riders currently riding for them - and all with a sense of humor... perfect.
