Bad Idea Ads: Chris Berman, ‘Countdown’ Cohorts Dressed Up Like SWAT Team

Good golly. Gee whiz. Additional exclamation of exasperated annoyance. Would you get a look at that? The thought of Chris Berman, Tom Jackson, Mike Ditka, Keyshawn Johnson and a clinically insane-appearing Chris Carter (he must be the B.A. Baracus of the group) armed with semi-automatic weapons and the clearance to shoot to kill is a little too much for this hombre to handle. Disturbing.

Apparently, this was all part of a commercial ESPN will be rolling out promoting either Sunday NFL Countdown or Monday Night Countdown, take your pick.

Then again, not as disturbing as The Bermanator poster found in a sports bar in Sanibel Island, Florida :

Sarah Connor? You’re with me, Leather.

Chilling. Here’s some more photos of the shoot:

Did Berman ever move during the shoot?

Ladies and gentlemen, two of the best in the business. Frightening.
