If you needed any more evidence that Comedy Central is hyping The Roast of Charlie Sheen as much as they can, just check out the new advertisements the network released today.
In the first 30-second ad, Sheen is the conductor of a carnival-infused Roast Express train, with numerous bizarre characters as passengers, according to USA Today. One of the passengers asks Sheen, “Does this train stop at Normalville?” To which Sheen can only reply, “Honey, we left there a long time ago!”
The second spot, which is just 15 seconds, builds on the crazy train theme, but this time Sheen is more directly addressing the audience, according to E! News. Sheen challenges anyone in his path to roast him. He calls Comedy Central’s attempt "Like trying to duct tape the wind to the ground. It's like trying to catch a tsunami in a sippy cup. Good luck, mortals."
The special airs on Sep. 19, with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane acting as Roast Master. The full guest list has not been revealed, but yesterday it was announced that Mike Tyson and Steve-O will be among the roasters.
