    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.

      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…

      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?

      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.

        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.

      Pretty much.

      Pretty easy for the Cosmos to get away with a publicity stunt–people respect them as much as they respect a AA ball club.

        Right, because MLS teams like Red Bulls are like the bastions of credibility and respect in the USA. #getreal

        You’re a second division club in America. Red Bulls are taken infinitely more seriously than you.

        asa pro soccer team in America….none of us are taken seriously by the sporting public…stop pretending as if your the god damn EPL you nitwit. You are a team in a league no one cares about, same as us.

        No one respects a team that plays in James I. Shart stadium.

        Real fans support teams not stadiums, i know that is a hard lesson for red bull fans to understand.

    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.

      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.
