Deportivo Altura attempt to mock Sergio Ramos’ English in Christmas video

Dirty Tackle

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos was recently made fun of for his dicy English in a holiday greeting to the children of the club's sports schools (video below). So lower division club Deportivo Altura decided to produce a Christmas video in English to show Ramos how it's done, but they didn't have much more success than he did.

Filmed near the urinals, three Altura players hold champagne and ask Ramos to "please don't be angry" with them after they delivered their holiday wishes. It's all just a bit of fun, of course, but it just might be the first time a football club has ever tried to mock someone while wishing people a merry Christmas.
