Whenever I think local TV ads with NFL players, Matt Light & Fagan Door is always first to come to mind. So perfectly shitty in the most endearing way.
Let the record show that I started this blog at 10:40 pm after already going into bed for the night. I was actually trying to do the right thing and go to bed at decent hour (before 1 AM) to have enough energy to burn the candle at both ends; teaching the inner city youth Modern World History I & II over Chromebooks in a dilapidated building by day and learning Adobe Creative Cloud while balancing blogging by night; which means I was watching NFL Films videos on Youtube to pass out like normal, when I came upon this video that was so awesome I just had to blog it and kill all my pass-out momentum. In a much more valuable than an extra hour or two of sleep sort of way, it's good I am writing this because the blog never sleeps. #HireDozo
What I'm trying to say is even when I try to bang out a quick two paragrapher, it turns into War and Peace.....in this case because I procrastinated/let my head get the best of me. If I had posted my blog that I've mentioned before that is still in the chamber (because it's like 70% done) about my nightly habit of passing out to NFL related content on Youtube that is chock full o' Christmas references that are frankly staying in when it eventually sees the light of day, you would've known that I loveeeee NFL Films and fall asleep to an episode of America's Game almost every night. Phew! What a sentence/paragraph.
Even though I know I shouldn't give into the machine, when Youtube suggested NFL Films Presents: When NFL Players & Hilarious Local Commercials Collide Ft. Phil Swift!, I just had to click. That is right up my alley. While it's not John Facenda, Phil Swift is fine Billy Mays (R.I.P.) substitute and you know how much love Mad Men. We've got Roger Sterling with significantly worse hair giving actual valuable insight into what goes into these commercials during this seven minutes in niche sports heaven.
Excuse me for what I'm about to say if you're not intro great analogies that cover (nearly) the entire human sexuality spectrum, but this video had me feening for more like a chick or bottom who just got railed really nice, but unfortunately the gentleman or transgirl came too soon (no judgments on DOL, not only men have penis' & I think with those four terms I covered almost all possible scenarios).
6:59 was simply not enough time to dedicate to kitschy local ads featuring both NFL superstars and guys that only the local fans love/know exist. I could've watched a full hour of local ads with 3rd receivers and punters. Maybe I was just super high (likely) but this video got me so happy thinking about how much football means to people, community, the local economy, society and nostalgia in general. That Wes Welker Bob's Furniture commercial brought me way back like the toupee he might've needed if not for Robert Leonard. I just had to share it with my fantastic readers. If you love license free football jerseys and small businesses this is the video for you. (You won't be able to watch the video on DOL, the video will direct you to Youtube)
That America's Game blog will come soon. Possibly tomorrow? As for the video, I could talk about every ad for another 45 minutes, but I really do need to go to bed and find a way to not ramble in blogs that don't need to be longer than Manute Bol for no reason. For the record, Marshawn carrying a toilet is the most beast mode shit I've ever seen ayyyyyy.
