And now we have two Alex Ovechkin commercials for Nike in consecutive days. Here we find the Russian machine showing off both his trick shot ability and deep love for citrus fruits. As an elderly Russian woman drops some groceries walking home, Ovechkin — always eager to be a good sumaritan — discreetly shoots an orange into her basket. Awesome.
It appears Nike is trying to turn Ovechkin the Russian version of Arthur Fonzarelli. And you know what? I’m okay with that.
