Look: ESPN's John Krasinski 'Monday Night Football' Graphic Goes Viral

Another week of Monday Night Football, another ESPN graphic that's going viral on social media.

The ESPN broadcast has become known for its creative animations during games. This week, they featured actor Jon Krasinski, a Massachusetts native and well-known Boston sports fan, talking about Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and his opportunity to pass former Chicago Bears coach George Halas for second place on the NFL all-time wins list.

The only problem: The character didn't actually look like the former "The Office" star.

Twitter is having a field day with the result.

"If you gave me one thousand guesses I would never guess this was supposed to be John Krasinski." -- Lucy Burdge

Here's the full video that aired during the broadcast:

It's the second week in a row that ESPN has taken some heat for its animation not actually looking like the person it's supposed to represent, with Top Gun Justin Herbert drawing similar feedback.

Gotta admire the creativity. But the execution could probably be better.
