This is the moment Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian displays his bizarre homemade Palm Sunday ceremony made up of Playmobil and Lego toys during the coronavirus lockdown.
The video was shared by former West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian, 33, recreating a ceremony for Palm Sunday as all processions in Spain have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, officially named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization.
Religious processions in Spain see residents walk in organised groups in the street celebrating Easter week from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
The video shows the moment Spanish stopper Adrian displays his re-enactment of a procession for Palm Sunday at home, made up of Playmobil, Lego and Pinypon toys among others, as traditional music for the ceremony plays in the background.
He starts by showing police at the front and begins shifting focus further down the parade as toys modelling a public are also seen next to them.
He stops at two figures wearing white pointed hoods known as capirotes revealing a figurine modelled after himself under one of them.
Capirotes are traditional pointed hoods some people wear during processions to represent penance.
Adrian continues to go down the model-ceremony showing several displays representing those shown during processions as the video comes to an end.
The goalkeeper was signed by Liverpool on a free transfer deal from West Ham United in 2019.
He made 18 appearances this season before the Premier League was suspended due to COVID-19 but was slammed by fans for his performance against Atletico Madrid which saw the Reds dumped out of the Champions League.
According to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University, there have been 1,277,962 cases of the virus leading to 69,555 deaths across the globe.
