D.C. United Joins Ridiculous Ad Campaign Trend

Eastern Motors boss Robert Bassam has publicly said he's unlikely ever to sign up a D.C. United player. But that's ok, but they're handling the "ridiculous ad campaign spot" requirements just fine without his luxury cars, thanks very much. See below.

True story: I often stay at Fairfield Inn instead of their more costly Marriott siblings because I love those really cheap bagels you get at their free breakfast, and you don't have to pay for the wireless access. Though I'm sure it drives co-workers crazy, since we're all supposed to stay at equally expensive hotels so The Post can't unfavorably compare our expense reports.

Anyhow, great job guys. I especially loved your playful interactions with the friendly and genuine-seeming Fairfield Inn employees. And Namoff, how about you update that Twitter feed at halftime next game, ok?

It's worth noting that 5 of Namoff's 11 tweets are about eating.

I'm not sure how I feel about the bog covering United anymore. 2008 didn't happen so the bog curse may be back. (Un)Fortunately, the bogman's greatest "voices" rival had this a little earlier than the bog.

I know where I'll be staying on the road.

Awesome spot!

Now if we could just see it on TV...

Thx,

Jay!

The music's drum track reminded me of a mid-'80s Casio keyboard.
Awful.

I did forget to mention, however, that Ben Olsen is the Man.
GO, UNITED!
