Kevin Hart Will Destroy Your Car and Haunt Your Dreams Until You Play Him at Madden Or maybe he just hates Dave Franco

It's Madden season, which apparently is a good time not to be friends with Kevin Hart. 

In EA's new three-and-a-half-minute promo for Madden NFL 15, we witness the extreme lengths to which Hart is willing to go in his quest to defeat Dave "the Lesser" Franco at video game sports.

As baffling as it is bafflingly long, the ad from agency Heat, San Francisco, rolls out quite a few celebrity cameos, including (for some reason) NBA star Damian Lillard and (because why not?) Harley Morenstein from Epic Meal Time.

If you like watching zany, over-the-top celebrity antics—or just like seeing James Franco's brother get slapped—this might be the ad for you. If not, well, you probably stopped reading when you saw the phrase "three-and-a-half-minute promo."
