Looks like we have two Twitter trolls on our hands now. David Luiz, presumably inspired by Eden Hazard's hilarious game on Monday, spent his Friday enjoying himself at our expense:
Bye bye hair instagr.am/p/LV6a52DHUp/— David Luiz (@DavidLuiz_4) June 1, 2012
Cue terror. Had the world gone mad? What was he doing? The hair - surely - gives him his powers. David Luiz without his hair would be like Scylla without Charybdis, no longer an insanely dangerous impediment to travel but a weird, ugly curiosity to be avoided with a slight detour. I couldn't help feeling slightly sick.
And then someone posted this picture. Pandamonion. Grief! Horror! Denial! Fortunately, the instinct to deny was correct, and the photograph turned out to be from days long since past. But we still didn't know the result of the haircut. And then David Luiz posted this:
Mild horror once more. But... that didn't look like a real haircut. Denial again. It looked like his hair could have been pulled back rather than lopped off, right? This didn't mean all of his lovely mop had been cut off, surely?
And then he pulled off the most Hazard move of all, leaving us with a teaser (only a slight trim?), then letting us stew. Couldn't you have picked someone else to learn from, David?
