Kevin Harlan has done it again – and in the Super Bowl, no less.
The CBS and Westwood One play-by-play man has endeared himself to fans in recent years by bringing his A-game to the silliest of situations, like streakers. Somehow, a fan was able to get onto the field late in Super Bowl LV on Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium, and Harlan came through in the clutch.
You can watch the video above (via Skeeter on Twitter) for Harlan’s radio call of the Super Bowl streaker, synced up with the TV broadcast and fan footage. It’s a must-watch to get Harlan’s distinctive voice delivering an enthusiastic call. But it’s also funny on paper when you put it in the context of security guards chasing a man in a one-piece women’s swimsuit, Benny Hill-style.
“Someone has run on the field – some guy with a bra. And now he’s now being chased, he’s running down the middle of the field to the 40, arms in the air in a victory salute – he’s pulling down his pants! Put up your pants, young man! Pull up those pants! He’s being chased to the 30, he breaks a tackle from a security guard at the 20, down the middle to the 10, the 5, he slides at the 1, and they converge on him at the goal line. Pull up your pants, take off the bra and be a man! And the players with hands on hips at the other end of the field are shaking their head and saying, ‘Why oh why is this taking place in a Super Bowl?'”
At the COVID Super Bowl, to boot! That could not have possibly been a sanitary human. The guy’s swimsuit advertised his business, which is a creepy porn site (go seek it out on your own time).
As a game, the Super Bowl might have been disappointing. But Harlan and the streaker most certainly did not disappoint.
