ESPN World Cup commercials

Been checking these out online – figured I may as well post them.

One question: Where is the North Korea version?


By coincidence I received this e-mail today from a reader.

Thought it was worth reprinting:

I just thought this was ironic and kind of funny.

I was listening to ESPN 710 AM on Saturday morning and they were playing the weekly FIFA update. The station plays lots of promos about its upcoming World Cup coverage.

The show was interrupted regularly in the middle of interviews and reports in mid sentence for commercials and promos, then ended abruptly with a Lakers show. It was a horrible job of editing and presentation.

The station also proudly tells me I’m never more than 20 minutes away from a Sports Center update. The ones on Saturday morning were repeats from an update that was recorded on Friday night at about 8:30 p.m. There were basketball and baseball games still in progress on Saturday morning, forever stuck in the 7th inning or 3rd quarter.

This is a station that is going to cover the World Cup for our area…great.
