Video: Arsenal's stars react to critical Tweets in hilarious clip

Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker and Mikel Arteta are all involved in this funny video provided by Paddy Power.

Forcing celebrities to read out, or react to, critical or downright rude messages on Twitter seems to be current social media zeitgeist. Following on from Justin Bieber having to stare into the camera lens after reading: "Dear God, give us back 2pac and we'll give you Justin Bieber," is a clip showcasing a number of Arsenal's most famous footballers responding to their own trolling Twitterers.

Filmed at the Shenley training centre in Hertfordshire, Per Mertesacker had to prove that he could turn faster than milk going sour, Lukas Podolski (after a number of attempts) showed that he can actually hit a barn door and Mikel Arteta took on a grandmother in a penalty shoot-out challenge.

Out of them all, Podolski's is perhaps the most off as the German international is arguably Arsenal's deadliest finisher, as the £20m-rated front-man has returned 12 goals from 1,380 minutes of FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League football this season - one every 115 minutes, on average.
