The New Grantland Commercial: What The Hell Is Going On Here?

  • Dan Fogarty

We think this is a real commercial. It’s on this actor’s official-seeming YouTube page and carries with it certain stylistic similarities to the first Grantland commercial. If it is real, and, again, we’re only 90% sure at this point, we have some questions:

* What are these people talking about?

* What is going on here?

* In what bar in America are people allowed to talk like this?

* Finally, and this is a question for the bookie from the first Grantland commercial: what is the over/under on the level of self-satisfaction displayed in this 30 second spot? Because if it’s anything less than “off the charts,” we’d like the over, please.
