We almost spit out our coffee this morning when watching this hilarious spot that was sent to us yesterday from W+K Sao Paulo, which is promoting Comedy Central’s Latin American invasion. Directed by Hungry Man’s Bryan Buckley, this two-minute clip offers some self-deprecating humor while introducing us to the World Cup Siesta, which we’re sure ESPN would totally broadcast were it actually real (on the Ocho perhaps?).
In a statement, Buckley says, “I couldn’t bring myself to watch a single Olympic Event. And hell, I was in London when they were happening. That’s how much shooting World Cup Siesta messed with my mind. I kept saying to myself what can possibly be more exciting than that?” Truth be told, we’ll never take our nap time so casually again. Credits after the jump.
