Crystal Palace Have Posted The Worst Announcement Video Ever For James McCarthy

Crystal Palace Have Posted The Worst Announcement Video Ever For James McCarthy

Crystal Palace have announced the signing of James McCarthy from Everton and we believe it could be the worst transfer unveiling of all time.

Following the signing of McCarthy on Wednesday night for a £3 million fee, Palace decided to release a video playing on his past with an existing Eagles player.

McCarthy played at Wigan Athletic with current Palace midfielder James McArthur where the duo won the FA Cup under Roberto Martinez.

Palace decided to play on this with an announcement video involving 'Friends Reunited' and it has to be seen to be believed.

Check out the video below.

The video involves McArthur choosing to be reunited with his former teammate at an 'internet cafe' before yelling out 'Yeah!' in delight.

The fact that McArthur's walk-out is clearly just a green screen compounds the hilarity.

Since the original video released, Palace have realised the error of their ways and since deleted it responding with a humorous VAR joke.

Twitter doesn't forget however and Palace fans are still reacting to the video.

There is a chance it was all part of the plan considering the track record of some clubs this summer in terms of announcements, with Huddersfield Town's Paddy Power sponsorship standing out.

Despite the cringe inducing announcement, McCarthy did discuss the influence his former teammate has had since his transfer.

Speaking to Crystal Palace's official website, the 28-year old said.

"The fans obviously come out in their numbers and I spoke to James [McArthur], he couldn't speak any more highly of it. I'm delighted to be here; it's a fresh start that I thought I needed."

The Everton man becomes Palace's fifth summer signing, alongside names such as Gary Cahill and Victor Camarasa.


Despite this, the future of Wilfried Zaha is up in the air following reports he handed in a transfer request.

Regardless of the business Palace complete on deadline day, surely nothing can be as bad as that announcement video.
