In four days it will be Christmas, but Santa has come early for the writers of 7500 to Holte. Leave a comment, and we'll be sure to get you a gif-t too!
Lately, you may have noticed that I've rather enjoyed making gifs of pretty much anything related to Aston Villa. That has combined with what has become a tradition of doing over-the-top Christmas posts here. In 2010, we found out what Villans wanted for Christmas, and last year we had the inside scoop on the team's secret Santa exchange.
So for the last Friday Feedback, I thought I'd combine the two. I sent an email to all of the writers for 7500 to Holte and asked if they could have any one moment giffed, what would it be? Think of it as their Christmas Gif-ts.
You'll find their presents below, but I've got great news: The gift giving isn't just for us! We want to give you something, too! So, the first five comments we get that provide us a request and (this is critical), give us a link to the video will get their very own Gif-mas presents, too! (And listen, if we end up with 6 or 7 requests, I'm not going to be a Grinch. I just don't have it in me). Now, your present will be a bit delayed due to travel, but you can expect them right as 2013 begins.
So be sure to leave a comment, and from us to you, Merry Gif-mas!
Matt: Not technically a Villa moment but I can't think of anything else. In one of Heskey's first games in the A-League he ran into and fucking anihilated the other team's keeper. It was amazing and hilarious and I would like that please.
Robert Santa: My god, everyone. Send thank you notes to Matt for bringing this to our attention. It is glorious.]
Andrew: Easy: Lowton's goal against Swansea. A) it was fucking awesome and B) I was fucking THERE.
[Santa: There are better angles of this, but I wanted to get the celebration in so that Andrew could re-live the joy he felt on that day every time he watched this.]
Gareth: If you can get your hands on the full build-up to Benteke's goal against Norwich, that'd do me.
[Santa: That passing is more magical than my reindeer!]
Kirsten: I was trying to think of something non-Benteke but I loved him schooling Smalling.
[Santa: This is perfect, Gareth wanted this if he couldn't get his first wish. Also, I know Kirsten only asked for the schooling, but I can't imagine she'll be sad to see the goal, too.]
Aaron: Guzan laughing at Suarez was almost as enjoyable and would likely make a great .gif compilation.
[Santa: Sadly, for Aaron, this was his second request. But I think you'll agree he chose wisely!]
Thanks for reading, everyone! Make sure to put your requests below. I'll be sad if we don't get any for Brett Ho-Ho-Holman!
