Italian giants AC Milan were filmed performing a ‘haka’ for a global skincare product, a sponsor of the Italian club.
The whole performance was carried out by actors in AC Milan uniforms, with advertising hoardings around the stadium displaying the words ‘Men, this is your ritual’.
Fans at the San Siro were less than impressed, and twitter users also slammed AC Milan for what they did before their game tonight.

You were once a great great club @acmilan but that Haka is sheer embarrassment.

Ac Milan have gone from the best team in the world to performing the Haka for money in just 11 years. Very sad pic.twitter.com/hfHiXkdYtx

AC Milan should be embarrassed as a club from a super power in European football to an absolute joke of a club.

@Marcotti Please advise if that Haka was actually the AC Milan players, the pictures are hard to tell! Surely it can't be!?!

AC Milan need to be deducted a good 30 points if not banned from football permanently after that pre match haka. Sickening.

I've seen crazy things in football but Ac Milan doing the haka beats all …
