ESPN World Cup Announcer Ian Darke Hilariously Calls First Date (Video)

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is 10 weeks away, but Ian Darke already is in mid-tournament form.

Darke, ESPN’s lead soccer announcer, stars in a funny new commercial, in which he does play-by-play and color commentary for a first date between a young man and woman.

As he would in any major soccer game, Darke brings the game to life from the opening whistle to the final one. Add this gem to the list of classic ESPN commercials.

See Darke’s “First-Date” commercial in the video below.
