The former "SNL" star plays Ted Lasso, a former football coach forced to learn soccer
Jason Sudeikis has a lot to learn about what we in the states call soccer in "An American Football Coach in London," a hilarious NBC Sports Barclays Premier League promo video.
The former "Saturday Night Live" actor plays Ted Lasso, the fictional new head coach for the very real Tottenham Hotspurs.
There is just one problem: Lasso doesn't quite get the game. At all. His best advice? "Kick it!"
In the video, Lasso attempts to learn the sport by playing "FIFA" on PlayStation, as well as from a helpful and funny assistant coach.
As he gains some confidence, Lasso guarantees Hotspur fans that his team will beat the Dallas Cowboys, the Dallas Cowboys and Jennifer Lawrence. That will make sense in a minute. It's also a window towards explaining why he gets fired at the very end of the sketch.
