In surely the most bizarre pre-match entertainment ever, AC Milan stars Gennaro Gattuso and Zlatan Ibrahimovic appeared to dance with the referee and play with a Frisbee before their match against Bari at the weekend.
Video footage of the ‘entertainment’ has been released by Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport showing players from both sides running out onto the pitch to the sound of Bon Jovi before performing a series of strange dance moves and tossing a Frisbee to each other while Queen blasts out over the stadium's PA system. Some of the 22 on the field are seen sitting down on the pitch reading newspapers while Clarence Seedorf is seen trying to box one of the officials. The most bizarre sight though is AC Milan captain Gattuso, who made headlines around Europe last month for headbutting Spurs coach Joe Jordan, dancing hand-in-hand with the referee. While many YouTube users have been left totally baffled by the scenes, one clip has been watched almost half a million times on the video-sharing website, it has emerged the whole performance was stunt set up by Gazzetta. The ‘players’ seen on the pitch are in fact actors and the stunt was part of a campaign advertising Gazzetta dello Sport.
