ESPN Commentator Ian Darke Calls a Date in World Cup 2014 Advert

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterApril 1, 2014

ESPN commentator Ian Darke is set to be the voice of the network's World Cup coverage this season, so he's limbering up by calling an awkward first date in this advert.

Darke, born in Britain, has been commentating in the U.S. since 2010. And frankly, if he can get this excited by a date, he's going to be good value in Brazil.
