Does anybody else really hate the new ESPN Gameday commercial? Kirk Herbstreit, Urban Meyer, Desmond Howard, and Chris Fowler are all playing bocce or something, and Herbstreit asks Meyer if he'll ever do something iconic with his wardrobe, like Tressel's sweatervest or Spurrier's visor. Meyer shows his two national championship rings and says, "Does this count as part of my wardrobe?"
Then Chris Fowler steps in and says, "I'd say that's...iconic." Desmond goes "Oooooooooooooooh" and Fowler/Meyer pound fists.
I normally like ESPN commercials, but I hate this one. I want to flip the channel every time I see it. I think it's partly because I can't picture any real person thinking, "Oh, snap! Those rings ARE an integral component of that man's wardrobe!" Also, Chris Fowler's pregnant pause before "iconic" is such a horrible acting job that it makes me want to punch a baby giraffe.
