One of the funniest TV spots surrounding sports in recent memory is without a doubt the “Coach Lasso” bit NBC Sports released last year to promote their Premier League broadcasts. With the start of a new Premier League season we also get the return of Coach Lasso, played hilariously by Jason Sudeikis.
After being fired by Tottenham Hotspur, Coach Lasso is back in ‘Merica and he’s looking to make the most of his Premier League experience. There are tons of great bits of information that he shares with us in this clip including how he supports “the Spurs” in the states, riding around in his car he dubbed Bradley Cooper, and the finale is the icing on the cake.
See the new video above; Premier League football returns Saturday, August 16th.
