At Early Doors we have become used to seeing foreign super clubs make a big deal over their new signings - just look at how Real Madrid and Barcelona pack out their stadiums with tens of thousands of people to welcome their latest pass-happy midfielder.
But Bayern Munich have now upped the ante in rather dramatic, and undeniably brilliant, fashion, with the German double winners holding a huge event on Tuesday night to unveil their new coach.
No, you didn't miss the big news that Pep Guardiola has been sacked. We mean the actual team coach which will transport the Bayern stars to matches this season.
And they even hired a magician - a MAGICIAN - to unveil their new mode of transportation. Just watch the video below and wonder at the majesty of it all.
The David Copperfield-esque exertions of the Bayern illusionist certainly gave the occasion the grandiose flavour it deserved. After all, what more significant event could you imagine than the unveiling of a new bus?
And didn't the crowd go wild, with at least five people clapping at the end.
And it doesn't stop there. We can also provide you with some thrilling behind-the-scenes photos of Bayern's new bus. Put down what you're holding and find a seat, as we blow your socks off....
Behold! The Bayern bus has SEATS and OVERHEAD LOCKERS. Truly the wheel has been reinvented.
Weep! At the sheer beauty of the mock-wood interior and a bespoke microwave designed to accommodate Robert Lewandowski's polish sausage.
Marvel! At the TV installation allowing Pep to review match footage and decide which defender he wants to turn into a striker next.
Hang on, though, the size of the engine key looks a bit unwieldy...
