And Now A Brief Word From Our Sponsor
I've never owned a pair of K-Swiss shoes, but I might have to run out and get a pair now. They have signed the greatest pro athlete in the history of professional athleticism as their new spokesman. Kenny F'n Powers!
Eastbound and Down creater/writer/star Danny McBride has actually signed a deal to make washed up, steroid abusing, drug addicted, foul mouthed, alcoholic, former big league pitcher and legend in his own mind Kenny Powers the new spokesman for K-Swiss Tubes.
If you've never heard of Kenny, you're missing out. Eastbound and Down made a short 6 episode run on HBO in February 2009 and quickly became a cult classic. Fans have been anxiously waiting for Season 2 which will finally debut September 26th.
In the meantime we can get our Kenny fix thru reruns on HBO and this new series of viral commercials that are floating across the internet and coming soon to theaters. If you want to see the behind the scenes contract negotiations, you can watch them HERE. (Extreme language and content warnings, but funny as hell!)
