VIDEO: Southampton Promote New Kit With ‘Mockumentary’ In Style Of The Office

Southampton’s media team should be shortlisted for some sort of BAFTA award for their latest efforts in promoting the club’s 2015/16 kit launch.

Revealing their Ricky Gervais leaning humour, the Saints have announced the fictional recruitment of the club’s first ever ‘Player Integration Officer’ as part of their #ShowYourStipes campaign which will see them switch from solid red back to red and white stripes.

‘Dr Barry Gale’ is the chosen man to focus on the colour and pattern psychology to smooth the transition to Saints’ new strip.

The club’s youTube channel have shared their latest film documenting a day in the life of Dr Barry Gale who seems to be channeling his inner David Brent from hit BBC comedy The Office.

Gale produces some blinding quotes like: “What I’ll be using here is something I like to call a Player’s Integrated Stripes Strategy. Now that’s a bit of a mouthful so let’s just all call it P***.”

You can check out what other shenanigans he gets up to with the rest of the Saints players in this video.
