Daniel Tosh unloads on ESPN for ripping off ‘Web Redemption’ segment
ESPN recently unveiled a new segment on SportsCenter that is called “Awesome Video Segment.” If you are a Tosh.0 fan and know what a “Web Redemption” is, you know already know the premise of “Awesome Video Segment.”
Like Tosh, ESPN has decided to interview people who have been publicly embarrassed by some sort of viral video. The World Wide Leader’s first subject was Canadian singer Mark Donnelly, who recently wiped out while singing “O Canada” at a junior hockey game. ESPN even asked Donnelly to “give it another shot,” which is exactly what Tosh does during every “Web Redemption” segment.
“You f—ing hacks are cheapening my brand,” Tosh said. “I’m fine with kids in high school or college plagiarizing, but once you work for a real network you should have some goddamn self respect.”
Tosh then went on to parody ESPN’s “Sports Science” with a segment of his own called “Sports Science.0.” Let’s just say his takedown of ESPN made the Lane Kiffin bashing he recently did seem mild. Tosh blasted ESPN for everything from grammatical errors to kissing Roger Goodell’s ass. You’ll want to watch the entire video.
