Kyle Scott - April 7, 2014

What I took from the 30-second spot airing now: Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy, bouncy. Insurance.

Hilarious that commenters on the video's YouTube page are calling this a horrible commercial.

Video: DeSean Jackson Cameo in Awesome New Nike Commercial

Kyle Scott - July 3, 2012

For the second day in a row, we begin our (reduced holiday week) coverage with a DeSean Jackson video. This one, a cameo in an (awesome) new Nike commercial, entitled Game On, World, which pays homage to Mario and other platform games.

D-Jac cameo at around the 20-second mark, just before the runner hops down the pipe but after the yoga pants tight shot we’re treated to at :22. Enjoy.

Shane Victorino Says He Will Lead The League In Triples, Manuel Agrees

Kyle - March 21, 2012

Shane Victorino

It must be a day of guarantees. First, LeSean McCoy said the Eagles were going to win the Super Bowl on SportsCenter, and now it's Victo's turn.

In a cool new commercial for Opening Day, several players make bold predictions. Victorino says he will lead the league in triples, and Charlie agreed. Kind of a weird prediction?

Video is after the jump.

Jaromir Jagr Stars In New Lottery Ad with Several Attractive Female Individuals

Kyle - March 8, 2012

Jaromir Jagr

Here is what we know about Jaromir Jagr: he doesn't drink, keeps himself in amazing shape, and he loves Philadelphia.

Today, we learned something new. He can apparently act.

In the ad which airs in the Czech Republic, Jagr plays a firefighter who is tricked by incredible looking women. Sazka, the company behind the new advertising campaign, is promoting its new lottery games.

Sazka web translation (via Puck Daddy):

On Sunday 11 Sazka starts in March next phase of its advertising campaign. The main role of the new spots again present face Sazka Jaromir Jagr. After a successful television spots in which you played on Jaromír Santa messenger or a pizza, viewers will see him in other roles to support the various games Sazka.

Spot "cake" is aimed at supporting the Euromillions game and Jaromir Jagr in it reveal its special rescue and desires. On the contrary, a very relaxing spot "Bed" will promote popular numerical Lucky 10 game and will appeal to those who in the morning or during the day we sleep late. Along with these spots will be approximately mid-April to still be "pizza", which informs the public with the Sportka jackpot. Then we introduce Jaromir Jagr in another surprising role.

All three spots were, like the previous ones, filmed in Philadelphia and will be broadcast on television stations TV Nova, Nova Cinema, family Prima, Prima Cool, Love and Prima TV Barrandov.


The commercials are after the jump.

Here’s a Ridiculous Winter Classic Commercial

Kyle Scott - December 5, 2011

As (@Roose_TTB) reminds us, it parodies this song, The Good 'Ol Hockey Game… which I'm not sure makes it any better.

HBO Producers Expect More Access For 24/7, Watch NBC Winter Classic Commercial

Kyle Scott - December 5, 2011

Beginning this evening, HBO 24/7 cameras will be rolling in-full with the Rangers, who are playing the Leafs. Presumably, cameras will soon be surrounding the Flyers, too. According to this Canadian Press article, the second season of 24/7 will closely mimic its first iteration, but producers have some other, more officious ideas in mind. Take it away, you Canadians you:

But viewers can expect some changes. For one, HBO is hoping to gain even more access than it had a year ago, when it showed footage from inside the dressing rooms, training rooms, players' houses, team planes and even the NHL's video room on a disputed goal review.

"I can't really tell you what (else we'll do) yet because it's not approved, but we're hoping for other microphones and cameras in places outside the rink that'll give you a feel for everything that's being decided and going on," said Harmon.

This is true reality programming with producers unable to manipulate or control storylines. Facing a quick turnaround time, they must simply follow whatever developments crop up around the teams.

They'll be joining the Flyers at a time when they've just lost captain Chris Pronger for approximately four weeks after knee surgery. Harmon identified the veteran defenceman as one of the players HBO had hoped to focus on. The Rangers, meanwhile, have been hot and look like serious challengers in the Atlantic Division.


Notice the way our friends to the north spell defenceman… yeah, me too. – le sigh – Anyway, another thing producers mentioned was that shooting NHL teams (not literally) is more difficult than, say, boxers and NASCAR folks, who are usually training, not in the midst of competition.

You can read that full article here or watch the NBC Winter Classic commercial after the jump. The choice, it’s yours.
