    New NBC ad for Premier League

    I find it pretty funny



    Coach: Is he from England?
    Asst: Wales
    Coach: Wales? Wait, is that another country?
    Asst: Well, yes and no
    Coach: How many countries are in this country?!?
    Asst: 4

    Kind of funny, but I find it a little insulting that NBC considers the Premier League to be such a foreign novelty to idiot Americans. It's only the most well-known and popular international soccer league... in the world. And ESPN has been showing Saturday morning Premier League matches for the past 2 years.

    I think you are taking it tad too seriously. The ad actually has a lot of positive feedback (youtube, etc), and people find it funny. It won't draw people into watch Premier League soccer, but it may make the average sports fan a little more aware it's on NBC now, that's really the goal.

    NBC is really making a pitch at the casual- or non-EPL fans. Definitely very basic and elementary and it could be irritating to the serious fan (not that I'm a lifelong fan), but I think they've done a pretty good job so far. I checked out their tutorial-like show on all the clubs and their review show out of curiosity. I'm interested to see the production of this whole thing once the season is underway.

    As for the video, I found it hilarious and have watched it numerous times.
