VIDEO: ESPN's Roll Tide Commercial Welcomes America To Tuscaloosa

New, 2 comments

Mock the WWL all you want, but it's knocking them out of the park lately with two different series of short films: 30 for 30 and the It's Not Crazy, It's Sports commercials thing. The latest, Roll Tide, features a bunch of Alabama Crimson Tide fans remarking to each other "Roll Tide" in various excellent ways, calling to mind that one NSFW Bernie Mac bit about the F word's versatility.

This one is the best yet, even better than the one about the Ole Miss spaceman mascot or the town in the middle of the ocean where everybody roots for different teams (it's like Atlantis meets Atlanta)*. If you've spent time in or very near Alabama, you know this film is really not all that big of an exaggeration, closer to reality than it is to parody.

* I cannot find video of this one, but it's really great too. Off to gush about ESPN some more elsewhere, I guess.
