In the funny video, Howler Media, a multimedia platform platform that covers global soccer from an American perspective, offers to give the soccer-ball-shaped phone for free with a one-year subscription.
The fake commercial, featuring Will Arnett, Jack Black, Paul Downs, Adam Pally, Sarah Silverman and Guillermo from "Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” was released just before Father's Day. Sarah said at the beginning of the clip, "Father's Day is right around the corner and once again I'm stumped. You know, he's impossible to buy for. I'm out of ideas.” All the stars in the parody are represented by Kovert Creative.
Around the time the original commercials aired, Sports Illustrated gained 1.6 million new subscribers.
