MOST COMMENTED

For years, Mexican national team stars have appeared in television commercials on U.S. (Spanish-language) television. Now, U.S. national team standout Landon Donovan has used his notoriety as the Tri's No. 1 villian -- and Spanish-language skills -- to star in a commercial for Ganagol, the Mexican soccer lottery company.

Donovan stars as himself trying to cross the border into Mexico as a Mexican disguised with a mustache and sombrero. When the border guard stops him, Donovan says, "I'm Mexican." But the guard isn't taken by the disguise and rips off Donovan's mustache. "You're Landon Donovan," the guard says.

Asked what he is doing, Donovan responds, "Winning in Mexico is much easier," before adding his pitch, "I am speaking of Ganagol."
