This video is about Hulk, but Andrei Arshavin’s laugh steals the show

Red Bull produced a series of videos based on the premise that Hulk doesn’t know his own incredible strength. In this particular video, Hulk attempts to blow out the candles on a birthday cake, but ends up blowing the whole cake into a teammate’s face. But all of that irrelevant. All that truly matters is our dear Andrei Arshavin’s laugh.

Though Arshavin left Zenit to join Kuban Krasnodar earlier this month, he leaves his mark on this video with a sound that I never knew a human body could produce. It’s like a seal got loaded on nitrous oxide and then swallowed a rusty bike horn. And the facial expressions! Oh, the facial expressions.




And why is his tongue blue?!

Miss u, Andrei. Miss u so bad.

      I didn’t make those Q&As up! They were from Andrei’s actual website. Sadly, he hasn’t done a new one in years.

  2. This is an insanely specific anecdote, but I’ve been on commercial shoots with food stunts before. Andrei’s tongue is blue because he’s been eating the excess cake. They probably had at least a dozen, one to smear on the teammate and the rest for actually filming, and Andrei just filled up on a plate of blue cake chunks.

    Probably also explains the faces and laugh. You know he’s not supposed to have sugar after 4pm!
