(March 23, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – NFL players are widely considered the greatest athletes in all of professional sports. However, behind every last-second catch, drive-stopping tackle or game-winning kick, there’s a gut-busting gaffe, a side-splitting slip and jaw-dropping drop. Now, Warner Home Video (WHV), NFL Films and the National Football League (NFL) have teamed up to compile the best (or is it the worst?) foul-ups and calamities of the present day NFL with the release of “NFL Greatest Follies Volume Four” DVD. This DVD features many of today’s NFL greats performing some of the most hilarious acts ever captured on film. This laugh-out-loud DVD will hit stores on June 2, 2009 for $19.98 SRP. Order due date is April 28, 2009. In the latest installment of the “Follies” series, the Emmy-winning madcaps at NFL Films will have fans laughing along with the so-called “masters of the game” as they fumble and flounder their way down the field. “NFL Greatest Follies Volume Four” DVD takes the hard-charging intensity of pro football and completely ignores it for nearly two fun-filled hours of the players and coaches caught in the act of being themselves. All the sideshow attractions will be covered in the latest addition to this classic series, including everything from absurd fashions of the NFL, why some 300-pound linemen shouldn’t dance (or sing), and (of course) a “Follies” favorite: poking fun at players, officials and mascots! “Everyone loves a good laugh and the latest chapter in the follies collection chronicles today’s NFL stars in moments they would typically like to forget but make for one amazing DVD,” said Don Polite, Executive Director, Sports and Fitness Marketing, Warner Home Video. “Just in time for Father’s Day, this is one DVD that will keep dad and the entire family laughing over and over.” The Credits About Warner Home Video With operations in 90 international territories Warner Home Video, a Warner Bros.
