WATFORD’S attempt to troll Southampton and Charlie Austin in response to the incredible ‘Parklife’ video appear to have fallen flat.
The Saints striker went on an remarkable rant at full-time following the 1-1 draw against the Hornets by blaming a decision that denied them a second goal.
One genius managed to make a mash-up of Austin’s post-match interview over Blur’s famous anthem ‘Parklife’ – and it was astonishing.
The inspired video has since gone viral and even the England striker himself helped spark the trend with the Tweet “#PARKLIFE”.
And in response, Watford attempted to mock the player by posting a clip of manager Javi Gracia’s comments on the officiating over the same song.
In the clip, Gracia is talking about a controversial penalty decision that the visitors were denied.
At one point he says: “After speaking to [Nathaniel] Chalobah he told me it was clear and then maybe [could have] changed the game from that moment.”
Alongside the video, Watford tweeted: “It wasn’t only your disallowed goal, @chazaustin10.”
But it appears the club’s attempt to upset the apple cart haven’t gone down too well.
One fan on Twitter said: “You’re embarrassing yourself lads.”
And a Reddit user added: “Embarrassing video at least the original was funny.”
A Watford fan did enjoy the humour, however, and said: “Throwing shade at a player of a rival team, big up the orns.”
