Arsenal join #RainbowLaces campaign with hilarious video

Arsenal just can't change how awesome they are.

There's a lot that you can't change, but some things can be and are worth changing. That's the idea behind Stonewall's #RainbowLaces campaign -- they've sent rainbow-colored shoelaces to every player in Britain, in the hopes that they'll wear them in next weekend's games to show their support for eliminating homophobia from the game. I'm a big fan of that idea, but I'm an even bigger fan of the video they made with Arsenal to help promote it. Here you go:

Again and again these guys get put in positions to show off their personalities, and every time they knock it out of the park. Although I remain unconvinced that Theo Walcott and Lewis Hamilton really look that much alike, pretty much everything else in here is pure gold. Look out for Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud in particular, for...shall we say, different reasons.

It's too bad, but Arsenal just can't change that they're awesome.

EDIT: I just found the club's official announcement on this, which is kind of cool too.
