He became everyone's favorite coach after taking the gig at the helm of AFC Richmond in Apple TV's popular television show, Ted Lasso.

And Jason Sudeikis spoofed his now iconic character as he suited up in patriotic garb for a new Foo Fighters music video, Love Dies Young, from their latest album, Medicine at Midnight.

The 46-year-old actor gave a rousing three-minute monologue in an Eastern European accent to a host of synchronized swimmers in the seven minute clip directed by Dave Grohl.

Sudeikis sported a bright red bomber jacket with white stripes running vertically across his chest and a blue panel with white stars.

He stuck with his old-school coach theme and wore a white polo shirt with khaki slacks while carrying a clipboard and notepad.

Tying everything together, Jason gave off strong Bela Karolyi vibes with a platinum blonde, '80s inspired wig with a matching mustache.
