Wales internationals Aaron Ramsey, Joe Ledley and Chris Gunter swapped their football boots for scorecards as the trio teamed up with Vauxhall Motors and TV presenter Gethin Jones to hunt for the ultimate Welsh #GetIN goal celebration ahead of the Dragons’ EURO 2016 campaign this summer in France.
Ramsey, Ledley and Gunter kicked off Vauxhall’s campaign by becoming judges, auditioning the Welsh public and re-enacting their own cult dance celebration, first performed when Wales qualified.
In true talent show fashion – the weird and wonderful acts flocked to perform in front of the famous judges – triggering a range of reactions including utter shock, amusement, amazement and everything in between.
Arsenal midfielder; Ramsey, was unable to hide his surprise when he saw an old school friend audition, whilst both he and Reading defender Gunter had to shield themselves from an overzealous swordsman who twirled a two foot sharp metal sword in front of the startled judges’ faces.
As much as he tried to hide it, dance sensation Ledley of Crystal Palace could not hold back the laughter as one performer unleashed an unusual Russian style jig and Gunter informed one hopeful that he was lucky not to be given the red card for his unimpressive performance.
The player judges were most impressed with the 5-a-side football team from Leith, who beat off other competition by forming a human bicycle. The boys scored a perfect 30 out of 30 and their unique celebration will now become the official #GetIN celebration for Wales this summer and will be performed at a live event by the talented winners.
Wales ace Ramsey said, “Chris, Joe and I all had a lot of fun judging the Vauxhall #GetIN celebrations for Wales.
“We all really got into it and hope the Welsh public do too. As well as some funny auditions – and a few slightly weird ones – most of the talent we saw were really good.
“I’ll be borrowing a few of the moves myself and I’ll have to get some of the other boys together to see if we can top the Bicycle Boys’ routine in France.”
