Times of India's James Rodriguez/James Bond Headline Goes Viral

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 1, 2014


James Rodriguez is generating plenty of headlines after a string of stirring performances for Colombia at the World Cup.

But most of them are better than this.

The Times of India put together a piece on his unusual name (or at least, the unusual pronunciation of James as a Spanish "Ha-mez"). His parents, as per Ed Malyon of The Mirror, named him after James Bond.

But somehow, the headline didn't quite capture all that.

"The name is Bond, James Rodriguez."

What a pity, Mr. Times of India.
