ESPN Radio host Colin Cowherd has always been someone that played loose with the facts. It could be his offensive and inaccurate social commentary, his making up numbers, or his propensity to lean on lazy stereotypes and insulting analysis that has no basis in reality. Any time I see Colin Cowherd appear on my television screen, I immediately put it in a vat of hydrofluoric acid so as to immediately destroy it without a trace of physical evidence.
That's why it's so puzzling to me why any company, anywhere, would want to use Colin Cowherd in an ad… let alone a scary looking animated version of Cowherd.
At least Maximum Beverage in West Hartford, CT was smart enough to hire a delightful chap named Max Maxwell to fact check and correct Cowherd throughout this bizarre cartoony spot. Get it? MAXimum Beverage? MAX! MAXwell! Aha, aha, sigh. I just can't get past the poor animation, how frightening Cowherd looks, and the oddball dialogue to learn anything whatsoever about Maximum Beverage. And, as painful as his name is, I'd certainly rather have Max Maxwell on ESPN Radio every morning than Colin Cowherd.
