Angelo Cataldi almost died for this Cheesesteak Shuffle spoof

Cheesesteaks are good for pretty much one thing and one thing only: eating them.

Using them for B roll footage on sports television broadcasts or as a theme for some Super Bowl Commercial is a bad idea nine times out of ten. So it shouldn’t surprise you that we here at hated Geico’s “Cheesesteak Shuffle” commercial that aired locally during the Big Game last night.

source:  In a somewhat related story, you may have heard about Angelo Cataldi almost dying last week while choking on a cheesesteak only to be saved by none other than Howard Eskin’s son, Spike. Initial reports had the scene of the near death experience as a television commercial of sorts.

Turns out, Cataldi was filming a mock “Cheesesteak Shuffle” video which you can watch above.

All of this leaves me with one final thought: Please, please, please, please, please, Eagles — make it to the Super Bowl next year so we can have something to talk about other than stupid sandwich commercials. Please.

    SB Nation has birds power-ranked #1 for next season, right above Seattle. Not making that up.
    Cause for hope, or just another ‘dream team’ thing?…

      I love rock em shock em rankings. Stir the pot and get them all on the carousel arguments.
