The 2014 FIFA World Cup is only two months away and ESPN is stepping up their promo game for the world's most watched sporting event. This 2 1/2 minute commercial featuring ESPN soccer announcer Ian Darke is definitely worth a watch.
The ad features Darke calling the play-by-play on a couple's first date and is complete with all of the bumbles and efforts of a nervous guy trying to pull off the impossible.
I love it. I'm sure the TV version will be chopped down to 30 seconds and not have the charm and awkwardness of this extended version...but that's what we're here for.
