Chuck Norris Puts T-Mobile in Czech

Walker, Texas Ranger and one of Americas original badasses, Chuck Norris, has some fun in the Czech Republic while starring in this latest T-Mobile campaign that’s unfortunately not running in the U.S.

In the spot above, the martial arts legend gets a little squeamish while a woman is about to pulverize a live fish with a mallet. Chuck Norris fainting from a fish? Ha ha, we get the funny. It works out pretty good for Chuck in that he doesn’t even have to say a single line in the whole ad. You don’t want to push the 70-year-old too hard.

We apologize for the campaign being in Czech and not having a translator on-site but we’re sure you can get the gist of it all. You’re all very smart people. View the rest of the campaign after the jump.
