Our digital hats are off this week to… NBC!
On Sunday, the sports network released the video: ‘An American Coach in London’ – well, actually it’s comedian Jason Sudeikis, but the idea is that he gives a frightening glimpse of what might happen if a football team ever did decide to take in talent from the USA!
The hilarious video shows the coach (Ted Lasso) playing clueless when working with Premier League football club, Tottenham Hotspur.
Footballer Gareth Bale gets a special feature when Lasso asks: “Gareth Bale, where’s he from – England?… Wales… wait that’s another country?”
The video was made to advertise the Premier League coming to NBC and to date it’s had over 3 million views, 17,000 likes on YouTube and 2,400 comments!
We particularly LOL’d at his appointed nickname from the team. If you haven’t watched it already, do so now! It’s Friday after all.
