Robbie Williams dons Carlton AFL guernsey and walks around London, only a few residents recognize the pop superstar

Pop singer Robbie Williams posted clips of himself wandering around London wearing a Carlton AFL guernsey in a bid to see who would recognize him.

The former Take That singer has recently become an ardent supporter of the football team and has received widespread praise at the 2022 AFL Grand Final for his pre-game performance.

The star posted the videos on Instagram on Tuesday, showing himself wandering around London while his wife Adya filmed.

His jumper even had “ROBBIE” on the back of it, which he thought would let people know who he was.

“What I want to happen is … if people are kind of like, ‘what is this?’ And then they come back and then it says ‘ROBBIE’ on the back, they kind of know it’s me,” he said.

In a separate video, Williams sits on a bench while passers-by ignore him, apparently unseen by the star.

A man walks by while pushing a cart, but even after the singer nods to him, the man only gives a simple wave in return.

In another clip, Williams is greeted by a restaurant employee who says, “Bongiorno!”

She tells him that she recognized him because she had already seen one of the other clips of the singer wearing the guernsey.

“I can’t believe no one recognized you,” she says.

“Well, thanks – here we go,” says Williams, apparently relieved to be recognized.

He is later stopped by a woman with three children who takes a photo of him, and two other passers-by ask for a photo.

“Jackpot,” he says, before happily mimicking a cowboy with a lasso.

Social media users were amused by the singer’s antics and shared their thoughts on the lighthearted stunt.

“I absolutely love this and especially Rob in the Carlton shirt. Go blues and go Rob,” said one.

“Adored by millions but actively looking for people to recognize him – you two are absolutely crazy and I love it! Let’s see what happens today, yesterday was fun! X,” said another.
