Apple TV: “Lasso & Mourinho” - 2 mins 22s

Jose Mourinho may no longer be the Special One, but he remains adland's gaffer of choice. Apple TV are the latest brand to enlist the Tottenham manager's services, as he gives sitcom coach Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) some pithy advice about the beautiful game. Alas, gridiron émigré Ted is way out of his league/sport.

Sudeikis's chipper, uninformed Lasso is a fun counterpoint to Mourinho's terse perfectionist, who tends to a bonsai tree while explaining the nuances of European football. Spurs may prefer to see Mourinho knee-deep in the transfer market as the new season approaches, but this is a diverting culture-clash nonetheless.
