How about those Coors Light Commercials? Barry Switzer is so cute in this commercial I just wanna pack his lunch and send him off to his first day of school. I can’t believe how good they are. And not just because the coaches are saying funny stuff, the guys in the commercial are so money. When they ask for the second roll-away and the black guy goes “yyyyeah”, I die everytime. Like he’s jussst not quite comfortable bunking with the white guy. They aren’t gay! Two beds…. Hilarious.
I decided I like them because they’re almost childish. Something about it reminds me of the “I’m not hitting you” game that siblings play. Plus, does any sports fan out there not LOVE when NFL Films Presents -or whoever it is that does it- plays a half hour or so of having guys “Mic’d Up”? I think it’s because I never played football growing up that I’m so interested in what’s going on behind the scenes. Oh, and I never played any sports in a largely black environment. As a white guy who likes rap music, and thinks it’s hilarious to hear black guys verballing each other, these shows are the absolute highlight of my sports watching week. I just caught a preview for todays Ravens-Steelers game, and they flashed back to a defensive player saying to 35 year old receiever Derrick Mason (apparently old in the NFL) ”You gotta be the only guy collecting social security AND an NFL paycheck”. I love that shit. How about Brian Billick demanding Ed get him his beer? …. I just can’t handle it. ”…Coach says you better go Ed.”
Oh Nooo! Noooo! Haha… What was actually happening that a 40 year old man was yelling “oh no”. Don’t toddlers say that when they spill their grape juice? Shouldn’t Billick be yelling a procession of words that involve an ampersand, some ”at” signs and the number symbol? Great stuff.[polldaddy poll=1286442]

Retro shout-out to the “Terrible Terry Tate Office Linebacker” Reebok commercials. They’re old, but amazing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU1jra7RKCQ) I was obsessed with the Terry Tate ones years ago. They’re a tad long, but still classic. I have a lot of time on my hands. More blogs to come.
