Video: Jason Sudeikis Returns as Soccer Coach Ted Lasso in Funny Ad


The actor is back to play clueless soccer coach Lasso in a video advertisement for NBC Sports coverage of English Premiere League 2014-2015.

Jason Sudeikis is back as clueless soccer coach Ted Lasso in a new video promoting NBC Sports coverage of English Premiere League 2014-2015. The former "Saturday Night Live" star first debuted the character last year, playing American football coach Lasso who somehow landed a job as a soccer coach in Tottenham Hotspur. Lasso, who knows nothing of soccer, was fired shortly after.

Sudeikis now has returned as the character in a new hilarious ad. In the six-minute video, which was filmed like a documentary, Lasso is now back to the U.S. following his "six-and-a-half hours" coaching stint in the London club and is providing commentary for the game despite not knowing the meaning of offside.

"Offside - do you get it?" Lasso asks U.S. national team goalkeeper Tim Howard in a scene. "I mean, I think I literally have a better understanding of who killed Kennedy than I do what is 'offside.' "

Following the U.K. trip, Lasso now also picks up 3 P.M. teatime habit. He owns a Mini Cooper he calls "Bradley" and decorates his room with some soccer merchandise. The video ends with Lasso receiving a phone call offering a coaching position at Leicester, pronouncing it "Lie-chester" instead of "Leister".
