To celebrate their new British soccer venture, NBC Sports recently shot a hilarious spot with comedian Jason Sudeikis. The hysterical piece features the funnyman playing the role of an American (Southern) football coach that gets transplanted to England to lead a European football club, aka soccer team. The laughs fly when the ignorant coach can’t seem to be able discern between the gridiron and soccer field. And even when he does, his American egocentricity continues to bull him along. Genius!

It appears that Mountain Dew soft drink is joining the list of corporate names that have pulled back sponsorship deals with acclaimed HipHop artists. Most of us know how sour the recent Reebok and Rick Ross deal went. Now PepsiCo (parent company of Mountain Dew) has decided to retract its current “Felicia The Goat” campaign with Tyler The Creator of rap group Odd Future. Sources link the move to some online backlash that declare the spots as “extremely racist and misogynist.” Sounds almost like a joke to us considering that Tyler and the Odd Future crew have made their claim to fame in very unorthodox and seemingly “offensive” ways. In other words, wasn’t Mountain Dew aware of the particular “brand of comedy” that the group is known for before sitting down and signing that contract? Guess not.
Given the popularity of AMC’s Breaking Bad series, it was probably only a matter of time before Springfield’s most infamous family decided to give the pop culture phenomenon a wink. Apparently, Marge, Homer and the entire gang have a methworthy enterprise comprised of cupcakes that get baked and sold to needy fiends. This one’s so clever we don’t know whether we want to laugh or applaud!
