Fox Sports 1: Gus Johnson And Bill Raftery Broadcast A Birth

I’ve always been a fan of Gus Johnson. He’s enthusiastic without being a windbag and the NCAA Tournament just doesn’t seem quite right without his dramatic calls. I have definitely daydreamed about Gus narrating my mundane daily routine. But having Gus Johnson broadcast a baby’s birth seems quite uncomfortable. And that’s exactly what happens in this new Fox Sports 1 ad for Big East basketball with Gus and his partner Bill Raftery. Combined with yesterday’s Old Spice commercial, I think I found the most consecutively creepy posts on this blog. But Old Spice’s was somewhat funny too…this is just unpleasant.

1/8 update: Annnd looks like it’s been pulled.
