As all of you know many American soccer players are now plying their trade in the German Bundesliga, we are seeing these kids growing up fast and getting involved with the fast and very technical play for their clubs in Western Europe.
We don’t have to tell you about our former Red Bulls players or coaches who are already doing what they are capeable of doing for sister club in Red Bull Leipzig, but something funny has shown up on twitter from Leipzig that is advertising the big game this Sunday in the United States.
As everyone knows this Sunday, February 3rd the 53rd Super Bowl will be played at the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia which is the home of both Atlanta United of MLS & the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL which is owned by Arthur Blank who once owned the Home Depot Hardware store chain.
Well as I have said to you when I wrote my article on thanking Jesse Marsch for his time as head coach of the New York Red Bulls, he is a very funny guy and has plenty of wit. So when it’s time to help an advertisement to promote the biggest sporting event in the United States, you go all out for the comedy.
Who would’ve thought that a regulation size shoulder pads can fit inside a soccer jersey so well. The comedy that we saw was absolutely amazing as Marsch puts on the eye black, ten the American Football helmet, then looks puzzled when he catches a soccer ball.
Then gets tackled out of nowhere from a guy wearing an American football helmet and a white RB Leipzig jersey, who is none other than Tyler Adams and takes off his helmet to say those famous words on Monday Nights “Are you ready for some football”
You wonder when Jesse was the Head Coach back at RBNY, that Tyler wanted to tackle him down for some negative comments in the past and he finally got some revenge during this commercial. Plus we need to know how many outtakes there were to perfect this magic moment.
But all I can say is that this is probably the greatest spot for the Super Bowl and I hope CBS or if the game will be on NBC again, as we know they have the broadcasting rights to the English Premier League, can see this and borrow it when they have the game with Al Michael and Chris Collinsworth.
This was a very funny moment and I hope Jesse never losses his sense of humor.
