website, Derbez stuns soccer players by taking the field and scoring a

goal--all while wearing nothing but his socks and shoes. Viewers of the

face) and winds up in the middle of the fictional telenovela, "Epoca de

talking about Aaron Abasolo, one of his most iconic characters.

"While the spot has some fun with one of soccer's most outrageous

spectacles, the campaign is really designed to connect with all those

who can't live without soccer," said Rodriguez. "Many fans don't have

access to the teams they love, which is why, in addition to the best

Spanish and English programming, DishLATINO brings fans the top games,

leagues and tournaments at an affordable price."
