    The New Commercial for ‘Madden 15′ Is Awesomely Bizarre (Video)

    In recent years, EA Sports has put out some pretty funny commercials to hype the release of Madden. Last year, for example, they ran several different spots telling the (fictional) origin stories of some of the NFL’s biggest rivals. And they were fantastic.
