When Jason Sudeikis recently returned to Saturday Night Live as the host, he expressed surprise in his monologue that his Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso is such a hit. As he noted, “It’s built around two things Americans hate: soccer and kindness!” Despite that, it has become a hit and fans are waiting for season 3, which is expected to drop in the summer of 2022.

But the show has just dropped a short video featuring stop-motion animation, called “The Missing Christmas Mustache.” You can pretty much guess what will happen, and with all things Ted Lasso, it makes you feel pretty good at the end. Watch it below.
