Algebra: DGG + ESPN + W+K = Great New Spots

Actually, the math isn't that complicated. David Gordon Green teamed up with Wieden + Kennedy to make some awesome new spots for ESPN. Simple as that! These latest spots are for the Countdown, one of television's top football pregame shows, and feature the entire cast getting uncomfortably close to some of the NFL's biggest stars. The Countdown team includes Chris Berman, Tom Jackson, Mike Ditka, Keyshawn Johnson, Cris Carter, Chris Mortensen, and Adam Schefter. The two spots we're featuring here (turn on your TV to see the rest!) are "Game Picks", in which the egg scrambling skills of Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers are called into question, and "Patcakes", where Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker gets an unexpected breakfast.
