The Game Never Ends For One Sportscaster In This Long-Winded French Cable Ad

WHAT: French cable channel Canal Plus shows how one sportscaster's enthusiasm for the game extends into other aspects of his life.

WHO: Canal Plus, BETC Paris

WHY WE CARE: Even if you have no idea what a Messi is, you'll recognize the long-winded call many soccer sportscasters use to celebrate a goal. Sometimes it's a single "Goal!" with that single syllable drawn out over a seemingly impossible length, others it resembles what a soccer-obsessed turkey might sound like. Here, Canal Plus imagines what happens when one of these iron-lunged broadcasters goes home after a game and its predictably hilarious. It might just be the best depiction of fake sportscasting since Monday Night Curling.
