Will Arnett, Jack Black, Paul W. Downs, Adam Pally, Sarah Silverman, Guillermo of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," and American soccer legend Alexi Lalas have got your back in an irreverant viral video.

Kovert Creative, a bi-coastal entertainment and marketing agency, recently teamed up with Howler Media--a multimedia platform best known for their eponymous print publication, in addition to other original content--to produce the witty parody.

As Kovert Creative states, the video is "a spoof on the 1980's Sports Illustrated commercials promising viewers a free football phone with a one-year subscription to the magazine."

Sadly, you can't give the special guy in your life a soccer ball phone (there was only one and it's gone), but you can get him a subscription to Howler, a quarterly soccer magazine for a global audience.

Use the code SOCCERBALLPHONE, and receive 20% off a one-year subscription of Howler.
