The Blingtastic Liverpool FC Legends PhoneBy: Daryl | April 23rd, 2009
Are you a Liverpool fan looking for a new phone? Do you have £14,490 to spare? Then this special “Liverpool FC Legends Edition” Galentia ICE phone could be for you.
The handset is 18-carat gold and decorated with 18 studded diamonds, to represent Liverpool’s record haul of 18 league titles. Only 250 have been made, presumably because that’s the maximum amount of people who can afford one.
Big up close image of the phone in all it’s glory/garishness (delete according to taste) after the jump:
The jokes make themselves: The thieves who keep burgling Liverpool players have some fresh motivation, Rafa plans to buy two and rotate them to keep them fresh, the phone works better in Europe than it does domestically, etcetera.
Why is it being released now you ask? I’m not 100% sure, but it may be because if/when Man Utd win the Prem this season, they’ll equal Liverpool’s record of 18 league titles. Of course Liverpool could still beat them to it, but then the phone would be one diamond short (if that happens, could you buy an extra diamond and glue it on?)
The weird thing is that though £14,490 is a lotta lotta of money, it wouldn’t even come close to covering a Liverpool first team player’s weekly wages these days. And the slightly depressing thing about that is that the older Liverpool players – the genuine Liverpool Legends who actually won one of those 18 championships – are a lot less likely to be able to afford such a phone, while someone like Jermaine Pennant (who’s still technically a Red) could buy one without thinking twice.
But if you can’t pull fifteen grand together for a bling phone, don’t be too upset. You could always get the much cheaper and arguably less hideous L4Men Liverpool aftershave instead.
