ESPN Makes Fun Of DeflateGate in this Fantasy Football Ad (Video)
ESPN might be very dependent on the NFL for programming and content, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t drop an offhand joke or two in during an ad for one of their own products. In this somewhat meta fantasy football ad, a line is dropped that another actor shouldn’t be the commissioner of the league because he’s “softer than the footballs at Foxborough.”
TAKE THAT, PATRIOTS!
It’s a pretty funny piece, actually. Take a look:
“I’m sorry, guys. It’s just that this horse reminds me of summers with my grandpa.”
I’m sure the commercial will be successful, too, because it’s ESPN and fantasy football, so there’s likely nothing they could say that would keep them from getting 40 million users.
