WATCH Ted Lasso’s Return to Promote NBC’s Premier League Coverage [VIDEO]

ted lasso WATCH Ted Lassos Return to Promote NBCs Premier League Coverage [VIDEO]

Former Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Ted Lasso has returned to US airwaves with a new video, to promote NBC’s coverage of the 2014/15 Premier League season.

After being fired by Tottenham Hotspur, Coach Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) is back in the US-of-A, looking to make the most of his Premier League experience.

In the video, there’s guest appearances from NBC’s very own Rebecca Lowe and Arlo White, as well as Tim Howard.

In typical hysterical fashion, Sudekis (ahem, I mean Coach Ted Lasso) captures everything that is wonderful and irreverent about the Premier League and British culture.

Mobile app users, watch the video here.

If you missed last year’s video starring Ted Lasso, here it is:
