The latest spot from Wieden + Kennedy keeps things more narrowly focused on fantasy football, because all true fantasy fans watch ESPN — not for its airing of the games themselves but for all the guys who sit back in their chairs and earn millions via their own incisive commentary.
You, know, people like Matthew Berry!
We don’t really know him at all. Can you tell we rarely watch football?
There’s a product on offer here, though, and it’s ESPN’s fantasy football app.
The next spot in the series will air on Monday, August 8 — the day after the pre-season officially begins as the Colts and the Packers play each other in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game.
Can we just skip ahead to the Super Bowl? We only watch sports for the ads.
