Soccer, aka the “real” football, is always made fun of in the states for being less of a “man’s” game.
But in one of the funnier videos you’ll see today, NBC uses Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso in a new commercial to promote the Premiere League making it’s way to the network.
And it’s brilliant.
Coach Lasso clearly has no idea the basic fundamentals of football in London and uses hilarious lines like “ties and no playoffs? Why do you even do this?” and “how many countries are in this country?”.
With the Premier League moving to NBC and soccer (football) increasing in popularity day after day here in the States, let’s hope this is the first of many of these kind of commercials to come.
