Kinda bad timing to release this right after their 1-0 loss to the Bruins, but here’s the new “Because it’s the Cup” commercial featuring Alex Ovechkin.
Because he celebrates like a kid.
Because he celebrates with the fans.
Because he celebrates with style.
Because if you think this is celebrating, wait until he wins it all.
Because it’s The Cup.
Love it!! betcha it’s blacked out in Pittsburgh.

…And that is why he is the Red Jesus!
I think that may be among the best of this set of ads (narrator aside, because he just sucks), with only Tim Thomas’s challenging it. They failed at finding a clear narrative for everyone else. Timmy has it built-in (because he’s old, and he’s written his story). Ovi provides it with his personality. But kudos for those ad folks recognizing the angle.
And thanks for posting it, even though I held out watching it until I saw it the first time on TV. I dunno, superstition or something. Oh, hockey.
