    Nice! Why can’t RBNY be this media savvy and get out some cool-relevant-relatable-brand-building stuff like this?

    RBNY may have the franchise but NYCosmos has all the swag.

    • Mark says:

      Agreed. The Red Bulls put out decent content, but nothing that has any potential for go beyond the fanbase, at least not that I’ve seen anyway. This is something that could get picked up someplace and is sharable.

      Lets go Red Bulls, how about a response? Get Joey Chestnut and take it up a notch!!! I’m sure Jamison Olave can put down some food…

    • Chupacabra says:

      Yeah. This should win the cosmos a whole bunch of new fans. They should do more stuff like this, maybe some Bad Grandpa stunts with Johnny Knoxville or they could get Ashton Kutcher to coach the team. Who cares about having your own stadium when you can get punk’d?

    • Bongwater says:

      The question answers itself. If you name your team after an overpriced energy drink, you are not media savvy. NYCFC is going to cause them to rebrand within 5 years.

      • Cosmosfan says:

        Both of them are shitty foreign brands, one and energy drink the other a wealthy EPL side. One Team In New York – NY Cosmos.

    Peri’s face is absolutely priceless when Kobayashi really got into his rhythm. It’s a classic, WFT is this guy doing face. He knew he was screwed. Great video.

    Because if RBNY had a ‘team lunch’ of buffalo wings all you would hear is how irresponsible it is, and how it shows the team/coach isn’t committed to winning.

    In other words, if RBNY did it, people would just bitch about it.

    lol that was great

  6. Tk says:

    Cute, but pretty irrelevant outside of a few dozen people.

    Even if it went viral the NYC aspect of it would be completely secondary anyway.

  7. Ted Tran says:

    BWW is disgusting, couldn’t the cosmos afford a nicer place to eat…

    Should have got Joey Chestnut. Go American or go home.

    • Francois says:

      Joey Chestnut lives in San Jose, Kobayashi has a house in New York. It wouldn’t make much sense to fly Chestnut out just for this.

    • Murican says:

      Cause Cosmos have a long history of “going American”. Wrong Web site bro.

    Try some fried jalapeños :)
    That would be epic :)
    As for cosmos, just become the red bull cosmos. The Rebs bull can be the jersey sponsor and the team name , COSMOS. make it happen red bull

    BWW is disgusting. Why would you eat that sh*t? Damn, Cosmos trying to kill all their players before they play a meaningful game…
