Season 3 premiere of Ted Lasso shows big love to Nintendo
Season 3 of Ted Lasso premiered today, and right off the bat we see a lot of love for the Big N.
The opening moments of the third season premiere show Ted and his son hanging out in an airport. Ted’s son is waiting for a flight, and he’s killing some time by playing his Switch. We don’t get to see what he was plugging away at, but this moment does lead to a Nintendo discussion just a few seconds later.
Ted walks up to the flight attendant to get his son ready to board the plane, which facilitates this conversation.
Ted Lasso: Little guy was trying to unlock Princess Peach on Super Smash Bros.
Flight Attendant: I totally understand…I once held an entire flight to Sydney hostage until I finished the final level of Breath of the Wild.
Ted Lasso: Hmm! Feels like a potentially troublesome sentence to say in this setting, but hey, I appreciate you!
I’d love to show you this clip rather than write about it, but recording Apple TV+ clips is blacked out, leaving me with just audio. I’ll keep an eye out for a recording of this moment and add it to our post should one pop up.
