Nnamdi Asomugha is the latest NFL player to team up with Funny or Die for the purposes of off-beat yukkity yuks on video. What results is part ’80s buddy cop movie, part PSA about Nigerians princes on the Internet and entirely full of terrible visual effects. The Nigerian prince spam isn’t a particularly new reference to online culture, so hopefully in future installments, Nnamdi can tackle parody Twitter accounts and the scourge that is Sulia.
As for his non-acting career, Nnamdi has been named among the players who might be on the chopping block on the Eagles roster after this season. At 31, he’s not quite the shutdown corner he once was and he comes with a hefty price tag. So what I’m trying to say is, congrats to Nnamdi on the $55 million guaranteed that he is getting from Dan Snyder in 2013.
