Steve Nash and Landon Donovan Sitting in a Tree, T-E-X-T-I-N-G

October 19, 2010

What happens when a World Cup hero and spunky Canadian point guard team up for a viral video campaign? In this particular clip, the phrase “hilarious awkwardness” comes to mind.

In order to promote FIFA 11 – a soccer-themed video game that is inexplicably popular in a country that hates the sport of soccer – Steve Nash and Landon Donovan filmed a series of commercials for the inter-web.

This is the first of what will probably be many digital offerings.

As a Steve Nash fan (like, an inappropriately huge one), I enjoy seeing him flex his comedic muscles. It helps make up for the whole “never bringing us a championship” thing.
