What if feel-good, Emmy-winning international comedy hit Ted Lasso was reimagined as a horror series?
A spoof trailer supplies the answer.
Made by UK-based film student, video editor and series fan Francis Siberini, What If Ted Lasso Was A Horror recuts scenes from the current show running on Apple TV+ and depicts Assistant Coach Nathan as a psychotic villain.
As the streaming wars rage on, consumers continue to be the clear winners with an abundance of series ripe for binging. See how your favorite episodics and limited series were brought to the screen with these hand-picked articles plucked from the NAB Amplify archives:

Making use of the first episode of Season 2, which saw transfer student Dani Rojas accidentally kill a dog, as well as moments from the funeral of Rebecca’s father and the episode in which Dr. Sharon Fieldstone was hit by a bike, the video gives an unnerving take on the world of Ted Lasso.
This is accompanied with a screeching strings soundtrack and a violent blood spatter across Dani Rojas’ face.
And it has gone viral. Nick Mohammed, who plays Nate in Ted Lasso, even retweeted Siberini’s tweet of the edit.
Logically, iMore’s Oliver Haslam writes, there’s only one play for Apple to make, “Ted Lasso, in its current state, is already thought to be the best Apple TV+ show you’ll find on the streaming service. But I’d wager that a darker, more sinister alternative universe would lift everything to a whole new level. Maybe.”
