Those "promo's" (as they are called -- self promoting commercials) have been running for at least a month, now.

I think they are priceless, also.

One thing ESPN does -- they won't run a certain promo over and over and over, until one grows tired of it. They will space them out over time, so they remain funny, even after months.

My favorite is still the one where the guy is carrying Kerri Strug around and has to go to the men's room. ;)

Hadn't seen it here 'til recently... with the NHL lockout and NCAA football's transition into the off-season, ESPN hasn't been on my tube much. Just saw the spot on the web and thought I'd share for the non-sports-junkies. :D

I'm not a huge sports junkie, but I absolutely have to give a deep bow to the advertising department at ESPN. One of the few groups of people who've been in this business for a long stretch without having pitched a stinker.

My favorite is still the one with the lights going out because Lance Armstrong was getting ready to leave for the night in the generator room.

That commercial makes me crack up. I love how Lennox is slowly edging around vader.
