Kevin Hart Takes on Dave Franco in Madden NFL 15 for Heat, EA Sports

By Erik Oster 

Heat, San Francisco taps Kevin Hart and Dave Franco (James’ brother) to star in a new online spot for EA Sports’ Madden NFL 15.

The spot, which also sees guest appearances from Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard and Epic Meal Time co-creator Harley Morenstein, sees Hart go to great lengths to get Franco to take him on at Madden NFL 15. Hart’s incessant challenges of Franco degenerate into destruction of property over the course of the over three minute spot. It all starts out with one epic slap, before (for some reason) going musical, as Hart continues to challenge Franco to take him on in Madden NFL 15. That decision is questionable, to say the least, making it a bit of a challenge to get through the overly long spot. Things are at their most entertaining when Hart is directly baiting Franco, free of musical interjection. Stick around for credits after the jump.
