TV’s unlikeliest metal head

ESPN has always done some of the most amusing spots on TV when promoting its own brand. But we can now say, without fear of contradiction, that the channel has exceeded itself. This spot, focusing on buttoned-down NFL expert John Clayton es en fuego!


So funny to see the guy who makes certified public accountants look like rebels rip off the façade to reveal a Slayer T. And then shake free that glorious mane of hair. Check out the collection of metal posters on the walls. Sure looks like the boyhood bedroom of a kid who spent way too much time listening to Queensryche.

Can we just come right out and say it? This is genius.
