ESPN debuted its new SportsCenter office in the midst of its World Cup coverage on Sunday, and it couldn’t help but show it off. With Ronnie Shalvis as a production assistant needing to deliver a highlights reel, ESPN was able to show off the channel’s campus in Bristol, Connecticut with all of the flips, jumps, and rolls fit to run on a “This is SportsCenter” commercial.

Maybe now that ESPN knows what parkour is it’ll expand its coverage beyond football, Johnny Manziel, and LeBron James? We can only hope, because that whole soccer thing seems to be working for them right now.
