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

Friday June 13th, 2014

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).
