My initial reaction was "who knows what the cowriter of the songs in Mary Poppins looks like?"

Apparently there's also a football player by that name!

I got confused with Richard Lewis and I thought "probably, yeah, the guy has a pretty distinctive schtick". But no, I would not recognize Richard Sherman.

More Lyft fun the Warriors convinced Festus Ezili he'd been traded on April Fools day.

I'm in no way a Seahawks fan, but even I recognize Richard Sherman.

Still wondering why there were so many women. Did everybody but the two dudes just go "Hey, you're Richard Sherman." because that's what I would have done.

And I was thinking of Sherman Hemsley, who died two years ago, so I was really confused.

Shouldn't Sherman be preventing people catching a lyft?

I initially read this as "Richard Stallman" and I was ready to go wade out into the surf.

Would You Recognize Richard Sherman if He Were On TV in His Seahawks Uniform Catching a Football?

I just came back from Hawaii...Oh yeah, I try to go every year, with my friends, there's like 50 of us. We even bring some of the guys from work we don't like so much.

Hee.

(and dang, great job keeping a straight face and playing it cool in the first shot with the woman who recognized him right away.)

I've met the Disney Richard Sherman a few times, and he would be great at this as well.

Let's go drive a Lyft
Straight through the graveyard shift
Let's go drive a Lyft
And keep disrupting...

Yeah, but would people stop and listen to Richard Sherman if he were playing the violin in the subway?

No, but I'd recognize Allan Sherman (oy!).

would you recognize Jennifer Love Hewitt if she were your AirBnB host
would you recognize Ban Ki-Moon if he were your Tinder date
would you recognize Dave Matthews if he wanted to add you to his professional network on LinkedIn

Mod note: Folks, maybe we can call a moratorium on "I don't know the football man" in here?

Generally I dislike on principles of general pettiness people who are smarter, better-looking, richer, and more talented than I am. But for Richard Sherman I make an exception.

Not to threadsit but disclaimer -- I didn't post this as a test. I posted it because I think one of Sherman's many virtues (besides the ones BOP lists) is that he likes making fun of himself, too, on video.

I also admit I think he is an awesome football talent, not least because he is so smart.

"Richard Sherman's a big talker. He'd be talking your ear off if he was in the car with you right now."

Between this and Andrew Luck's book club, I'm about to keel over from football-adjacent wonderfulness.

Is that what it's like to take a Lyft? Not that Richard Sherman would be my driver -- that would be a great day -- but that there's that much chatting?

cooommmme.... to a gaaaammmmme....

Why is everyone sitting in the front?

That was hysterical. :)

.Why is everyone sitting in the front?

Because Lyft is actually a stealth life coach business teaching people how to successfully fake friendship in return for getting what they want (in this case, a cheaper cab ride).

They've done this with Jerry Rice and Danica Patrick as well.
