Jason Sudeikis Coaches Tottenham on the Finer Points of Being Hilarious

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterAugust 2, 2013

Jason Sudeikis isn't really the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, which is the only disappointing part of this hilarious video. 

Premier League football is coming to NBC, and the network is spreading the word with a healthy amount of the comedian who stars in the upcoming We're the Millers 

As the video notes, the EPL is coming to the network on August 17, but until then you can enjoy the antics of the fictional Coach Ted Lasso—someone well acquainted with the finer points of American football. 

When it comes to the football they refer to across the pond, he is hilariously clueless. 

Sit back, chuckle and guffaw at Lasso wondering what these "trust exercises" are and how many countries they actually have in this country. 

If you want more, and I'm sure you do, Pro Soccer Talk features a few more videos. 

The best part might be the tackling that goes down under his tutelage. One player gets blown up to the amusement of an excited Lasso. 

Sports fans got a heaping does of Sudeikis as he helped break down the list of the best "This is SportsCenter" segments this week. 

As for Tottenham, they will head into the season with Andre Villas-Boas at the helm. We are only slightly disappointed we won't have Lasso demanding three points for a strike flying well above the goal this season. 

It seemed like coach finally got the hang of things at the end. But please, someone explain the offside rule to him before he blows a gasket.
