New SportsCenter Commercial With Stephen Gostkowski is Cringeworthy
It's super hard to mess up a 'This is SportsCenter' ad. All you need is a couple funny anchors and an athlete. Throw in a mascot maybe. Instant funniness. What a bag-over-the-head, punch-in-the-face commercial this one is.
First of all, this had to have debuted last night during the Patriots game right? The publish date on YouTube is September 29, and I know those ESPN interns are good at what they do so this was obviously planned for a Patriots Monday nighter.
I had to rewind it and watch it a few times. I thought maybe I was hallucinating from the anger of watching the game. But my research this morning confirmed it; Stephen Gostkowski actually has a SportsCenter commercial. And it's TERRIBLE.
Where the hell are the anchors? All we see is a couple nobodies. Some old dude and his receptionist. Plus I don't even I get it. Is the old dude supposed to be 'icing' him from negotiating a salary raise? Stupid.
What do you think? Yay or nay?
If the score of the Patriots Chiefs game was reversed this would have been the funniest commercial of all time.
