VIDEO: Clint Dempsey makes beef jerky ad with ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith | SIDELINE

Now, I've been hungry before to the point of my stomach rumbling and make indecipherable noises implying, "I'm hungry, feed me."

But the above commercial — Clint Dempsey's Oberto beef jerky commercial debut —  is arguably the worst thing to happen to one man's stomach since the entire Tottenham Hotspur squad ate the dodgy lasagna and got severe food poisoning before the final day of the 2006 season.

If my stomach ever starts talking and sounding like Stephen A., I'll know it's time to get my stomach pumped. That said, it could definitely be worse; Skip Bayless, anybody?

Dempsey, the Seattle Sounders and US national team star, recently began a sponsorship deal with Oberto, a Seattle-based beef jerky company. 

Great commercial, but seriously, Deuce; I'm really sorry about your stomach. You might want to get that checked out.
