A classic Rangers shirt has shown up in a K-Pop band’s music video in one of the most peculiar sightings of the famous jersey yet.
The famous away top of 04/05 – which conjures up images of Dado Prso, Nacho Novo and Hamed Namouchi – was spied in the video of Korean boyband WayV’s newest single Bad Alive.

You can also spot the famous top in the full video which has since been uploaded to YouTube.
You’ll get a glimpse of it about 1:13 in.
Despite the video only being released on the 29th of July at the time of writing it has already amassed close to 2M views.
It’s not the first time a K-pop band has worn a Scottish team’s top, with Stray Kids donning a Celtic top back in February in a video for their song My Pace.
Donning retro football gear appears to be a growing trend in the globally popular K-Pop scene, which is big even beyond the borders of South Korea.
According to Vox, “K-pop has become a truly global phenomenon thanks to its distinctive blend of addictive melodies, slick choreography and production values, and an endless parade of attractive South Korean performers who spend years in grueling studio systems learning to sing and dance in synchronized perfection.”
Back in 2017, the fast-growing Korean music industry even topped $4.7bn (£3.7bn) [Bloomberg].
Not a bad audience for this classic Rangers kit and the Rangers badge to find itself in front of.
