Kenny Powers is one polarizing figure.

Granted he’s a fictional character from the TV show Eastbound and Down, but that doesn’t stop him from asserting his authority.

He’s the poster boy for the new K-Swiss tubes, and does a pretty good job at keeping things interesting.

Watch here as he motivates San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis to run the 40 yard dash to his highest potential.

Danny McBride is the actor who plays Kenny Powers, although I think people have forgotten that by now.
