Color blind? Fowler stars in ESPN commercial

I’m not the biggest coffee fan, but the Cup of Joe that Rickie Fowler fixed in ESPN’s “This is Sportscenter” commercial is a morning boost that not even my 80-year-old grandma would drink.

The 30-second spot, which first aired on Monday, features Fowler and Sportscenter anchor John Anderson. To sum things up, Fowler, wearing his traditional Sunday orange, grabs the orange-handled coffee pot, thinking it’s caffeinated instead of decaf, and pours a cup. He then reaches for the orange juice thinking it’s milk, and pours that into the cup, too. Then he takes a sip, spitting it out almost immediately.

The point? Fowler must be color-blind since he wears so many loud colors on the golf course.

Here’s what Fowler has to say about the commercial on Twitter: @RickieFowlerPGA: Had a blast filming my new This Is @SportsCenter commercial…just wish @ESPN had better coffee

It’s another well-thought-out and funny commercial by ESPN. And as for Fowler, he once again proves he’s got game behind a camera and not just on the golf course.

I’m just surprised he didn’t pour some Red Bull into that cup, too.
