Tosh.0 Rips ESPN For Ripping Off ‘Web Redemption’ Segment [VIDEO]
Comedy Central host Daniel Tosh is not happy with ESPN for biting his Tosh.0 “Web Redemption” segment, and last night he let them know by tearing them a new one on national TV.
If you’ve ever seen the Tosh.0 “Web Redemption” segments, the host usually finds a subject from a viral video—often one that features said subject in an epic fail situation—and gives them “another shot” to get it right.
ESPN unveiled a new segment recently called the “Awesome Video Segment” that is almost an exact copycat of the Tosh.0 bit, even down to the verbiage used.
Anyone who knows Daniel Tosh knows that he didn’t take this lying down. As a matter of fact, he decided to rip ESPN apart by parodying their Sports Science segment—criticizing everything from their personalities to their obsession with Manziel, LeBron and NFL crime.
I think we may have seen the first, and last of ESPN’s (not so)”Awesome Video Segment.”
