Real Betis took an unconventional approach to announcing Isco’s contract extension with the club.

Isco, who joined the LaLiga team as a free agent in the summer after terminating his contract with Sevilla in December 2022, initially signed a one-year contract with Betis.

However, he has now committed to a long-term stay and is extending his contract until 2027.

While it is typical for clubs to showcase their editing skills for viral videos and images when announcing new transfers, Betis took a different approach.

In a video shared on their social media, an actor dressed as Ali G, a character played by Sacha Baron Cohen in the film ‘Ali G Indahouse’, takes center stage.

Instead of the original text, the actor raps ‘Betis, Betis!’ as he navigates the streets of Seville.

The video continues with the actor driving to Betis’ home ground, Estadio Benito Villamarin, and pretending to almost crash into another car while trying to park.
