It’s After Dark time!

In this recurring series, we capture some of the same After Dark energy that permeates late-night soccer games in the United States. There’s no shortage of crazy things happening in and around this sport — and we’re bringing some of the most entertaining ones straight to you.

This week, we have a presidential announcement, Jedi Robinson clinching his spot as the USMNT’s best Instagram-er, and more.

“Please welcome the new number six, Gadi Kinda,” some sort of fake version of the President’s voice says while a random (or potentially deepfaked?) video of the President plays. Then we get some aggressively loud music that plays over the top of some b-roll clips of the midfielder. 

Here’s the video of what is truly one of the most astonishing transfer announcement videos in the history of this sport:
