Sean Leahy at Puck Daddy brings news that Washington’s Alex Ovechkin will be a torchbearer at the Sochi 2014 Olympics. This not-all-that-surprising news comes to us by way of a Russian Coke commercial, dutifully translated below.
Ovechkin seems primed to have a prominent role in the Sochi Olympics. I feel like we need to staff up the blog to get ready.
Igor’s translation of the video, along with a billion other Coke/Ovi/Olympic videos, are below.
[Ovi sits down next to the boy]
Ovi: Are you worried? Everything will be “super”!
[Banner: Vlad Novitsky: participates in charity performances for children. Earned the right to carry the Olympic torch.]
[Vlad carries the torch, then lights up Ovi’s; Ovi looks nervous]
Vlad: Are you worried? Everything will be “super”!
[Banner: Alexander Ovechkin: supports clubs for children. Earned the right to carry the Olympic torch.]
Voice: Do you make the world around yourself better? Enter your name on CocaCola.ru to carry the Olympic torch!
