English broadcaster Ian Darke is well-regarded in soccer circles, and is taking his talents to the word of comedy in ESPN’s latest promotional video for the World Cup.

Darke is shown given the shot-for-shot on a first date between an awkward young man and an attractive young brunette.

I’ll leave you to decide what’s funnier: Darke’s pronunciation of the word “pasta” or the way he physically slides up to the table with the couple, headphones on dome. I choose the latter, as it seems more intentional.

    Haha! Brilliant. Although that’s how we say pasta in the UK! Don’t get me started on ALUMINIUM.
