VIDEO: ESPN's Jon Gruden meets his clone

The former coach popeye to eye with Frank Caliendo.

VIDEO: ESPN’s Jon Gruden meets his clone


Good thing this isn’t a concussion test because yesterday ESPN had us seeing double. The sports channel presented an edition of its popular Gruden’s QB Camp which saw the host with the penetrating glare grilling…himself.

Or a pretty hilarious imitation. Comic Frank Caliendo has always done an inspired Jon Gruden but, I’ll tell you what, it’s even better when he sits across the table from the original. And check out that gaudy ring on his finger. Super Bowl, baby!

The bit is funny right from the start as the two fix each other with Gruden’s trademark popeye squint. If looks could kill.

Wait, do they switch hats halfway through? I’ll tell you what, it’s hard to tell.
