We do a lot of trashing of ESPN around these parts and not unjustifiably so. In fact, other than praising the 30 For 30 series, I’m not sure there’s been much nice to say about the Worldwide Leader in quite some time. But then ESPN put out that John Clayton SportsCenter commercial last week and I’ll be damned if it isn’t just the most enjoyable thing the weird looking space alien reporter ever did.
Now the blooper reel from the commercial has been put out. At first, I thought, “Oh, great. Now they’re just trying to milk this one funny thing they did.” But it’s actually just as delightful as the commercial itself. Clayton should file all of his reports from that bedroom set in that costume. And if he reports on location, there had better be fans with “********, WE’RE GOING TO THE MALL!” signs or we’ve failed as a nation.

I love that John Clayton, a hall of fame writer, took the time to make an epic commercial that is as funny as this.
I’d have to say this is in the top 3 all-time ESPN commercials. I’m glad ESPN owned up to how creepy/freakish-looking John Clayton is and made an ‘all in good fun’ joke about it. For those that don’t know, Clayton is an ESPN football (NFL) reporter for ESPN and usually comes off as extremely serious and straight to the point. Good for you, John — showing the world...
John Clayton’s hair style and ugliness is so legendary on our website that we gave him his own nickname, Johnny Combover.
ESPN jumped into the John Clayton party with one of the best commercials in ESPN’s history.
John Clayton, the Tweety Bird-looking NFL analyst from ESPN was recently in a commercial where he finally let his hair down. When he’s on-air he looks like a meek, balding, short-haired man. A while back his former co-worker, the great Dan Patrick, outed him by telling the world he had a pony tail hanging lond and strong behind that tiny head of his. In the newest commercial...
Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we featured an ESPN "This is Sportscenter" commercial starring ESPN NFL insider John Clayton.
