New York Rangers goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist is featured in a new ESPN ad with one of the most underrated characters from The Muppets.

Who doesn’t love the Swedish Chef?  Seriously, what a great character.  He says a bunch of nonsense and gets angry in a funny way.  Getting angry in a funny way is tough to do.  The Swedish Chef was always able to pull this off.

Henrik Lundqvist stars in a new “This is SportsCenter” ad with the Swedish Chef.  Supposedly, Henrik is able to translate what the Chef is saying.  It’s a funny concept.  Honestly, this ad doesn’t do a whole lot for me, but I’m guessing our guy, Joe B (host of “Cover 2” Sundays 11am on 104.5 The Team), is doing cartwheels about this commercial.  Just listen to him wax poetic about his boy, Henrik (below).  Funny stuff.
