And Now, the Polar Opposite of the Olympics Brought to You By Comedy Central

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.
