With the Rams set to host the Broncos on Christmas Day, the two teams thought it would be funny to play a prank on their players, so that’s exactly what they did this week.
The prank was simple: Both teams created a special new Christmas-themed uniform and then the two teams proceeded to tell their players that they would be wearing these holiday uniforms for Sunday’s game. With the game being televised by CBS (and a special broadcast on Nickelodeon), the Rams and Broncos teamed up with CBS Sports to make the prank happen.
On Denver’s end, the actual jersey was basically designed to look like an ugly Christmas sweater. The Broncos also added some holiday cheer to their helmet by placing a reindeer decal on each side. You can see below what the finished product looked like.
The reindeer decal alone makes this uniform awesome.
On the Rams’ end, the best part of their Christmas uniform was probably the helmet. Not only was it yellow, but the Ram horns were decorated with Christmas lights.
If you’re wondering how the players reacted, the uniforms weren’t exactly popular.
“That’s trash,” one Rams player said after seeing the uniform for the first time.
One Broncos player took issue with the reindeer on the helmet.
“The reindeer is a little childish.”
Broncos wide receiver K.J. Hamler also didn’t seem to be a huge fan of the reindeer on the helmet.
Another Broncos player was willing to wear the uniforms, but only if he got paid extra.
“They are going to have to give everybody bonuses if we are wearing them.”
This might sound crazy, but I actually love both uniforms and I’d love to see them actually get worn for a Christmas game. As a matter of fact, the NFL should just make it an annual thing: If your team plays on Christmas Day, then you’re allowed to design a special uniform for that game.
Unfortunately, that won’t he happening this year, but you can see the entire prank video below.
