In the build up to the game's November 16 release, Johnny Drama and Turtle step in to shill for Need For Speed Hot Pursuit.

Though the HBO show Entourage is going into its final season, which reportedly only has six episodes and has seemingly lost its must-watch status after last season's endless parade of needless celebrity cameos and a heavy-handed storyline about Vinny Chase's fall from grace, it hasn't stopped Electronic Arts from tapping the lovable actors to promote the latest Need for Speed title.

EA says, "these witty and edgy commercials capture the rebelliousness of battling as a cop or a racer in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit." Witty, eh? Watch Jerry Ferrera and Kevin Dillon star as mindless valets in episode one, entitled "Officer ***," below. Don't cut yourself on its edginess!

If you are dying to find out what happens to the hapless valets, you can catch the other episodes at the Need For Speed YouTube page. These commercials don't do much for us, but we're still stoked to see what Burnout creator Criterion has in store for the long-running racing series.
