The british comedy legend and 'Monty Python' star scored a touchdown when he posed thoughts regarding America's favorite sport. And the Internet lent an ear.
Before the New England Patriots took on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, comedy legend John Cleese asked why it's called football when it should be called handball? And one does have to admit; why does America call it football?
Millions watched a hilarious video just shy of two minutes starring John Cleese (or the man that used to be him) as he tried his hardest to dissect the ins and outs of the game.
As per usual when John Cleese is involved calamity ensued.
It could be possible Mr. Cleese's ratings topped the game itself? No surprise there?
Britain's Holy Grail of comedy discusses America's athletic Holy Grail? Now that is a halftime show we can get behind!
This is the first football related anything I can get into. John Cleese gets it.— 😒 (@TehSoundTehFury) October 6, 2017
