EA's New FIFA World Cup Commercial Could Easily Be a Tim and Eric Sketch

Hot on the heels of ESPN's patriotic 'I Believe' ad, EA has released this all-American ad for their 2014 FIFA World Cup video game.

This commercial takes patriotism to Tim-and-Eric levels of absurdity -- featuring a cowboy on a horse, a fast-food employee, linebackers, and an astronaut (none of which, it is worth noting, are permitted according to the rules of soccer).  The video ends by imploring players to 'be the next American hero,' (since it can't be Landon Donovan).
