From the 1997 NHL Awards, this is a spoof of the Nike Skate commercials starring Kelly Hrudey of the San Jose Sharks
From the 1997 NHL Awards show, this is a fake commercial for “The Wig Helmet”, as advertised by brothers Keith and Wayne Primeau.
Stay tuned for more of these humorous videos.
I found my old VHS copy of the 1997 NHL Awards show. What made this awards show worth keeping around on tape all these years were the “comedy bits”–humorous, hockey-related skits that were put on before and after commercial breaks that lampooned our favorite game.
Here is the first satirical video, of Ron MacLean giving Phil Esposito a phone call…
Check back next week, as I will be adding more of these funny videos.
I’m going through some old VHS tapes, and I found this from 1994. It is a 15-second commercial for “The Mighty Ducks 2” (also known as “D2”).
Believe it or not, I have not seen any of the “Mighty Ducks” films. But I really need to, since Chris Chelios–my favorite player–appears in it, along with Wayne Gretzky, Cam Neely and Luc Robitaille.
Here is the second half of the interview with Brett Hull, which originally aired March 14, 1990. In this half, Hull talks about his second-favorite sport, why he gets more goals than assists, his reputation as a “loafer” and his appreciation for fans.
I came across an old interview with Brett Hull. This was taken towards the end of the 1989-90 season, where Hull scored 72 goals.
Here is the first half of the interview. Hull talks about his amazing season, his relationship with his father Bobby Hull, his parents’ divorce, and how he didn’t think he’d have a future in professional hockey.
Later this week, I will post the second half of the interview.
I saw this commercial on G4TV’s Attack of the Show, where they count down their top five best (worst?) short internet videos. Coming in at number one was this car commercial for local Pittsburgh auto dealer A & L Motor Sales. It “stars” Penguins players Colby Armstrong, Maxime Talbot, Sergei Gonchar and Evgeny Malkin. In typical “local auto dealer” commercial fashion, this commercial is awesomely bad.
“You? Who are you? I thought they only took care of sup-pear-stars like me” I don’t know what got into Talbot, but he’s almost as funny as Ilya Bryzgalov.
I also like the way that Malkin doesn’t get any speaking lines, but still gets to show off his good hands with that key catch.
