Ted Lasso is a character created by Jason Sudeikis for NBC’s Premier League.
He’s an American who was asked to coach the Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier Soccer League, but he’s clearly out of his element, neither understanding nor caring about soccer.
With NBC picking up another season of the sport, Lasso is back, and just as charmingly dim-witted as ever. Check out the video. He does for soccer what Spinal Tap did for rock ‘n’ roll.
