While I was watching The Daily Show last night, a new national commercial for Verizon Wireless popped up on the screen. I pretty much ignored it until I heard the word “Ovi.” uuuuuuuuAH? You know I re-wound that ish on my DVR.
Washington Capitals forwards Alex Ovechkin and Brooks Laich star in a new commercial for Verizon where they show up out of nowhere at a local hospital. No, they’re not there for the dude in pain laying on the gurney. They’re there for his son suffering from an acute case of #FOMOH: The Fear Of Missing Out on Hockey.
And Brooksie and Ovi are about to operate.
Son: Alex Ovechkin’s in town and I was going to watch hockey, but my dad scheduled hernia surgery on the same day.
Dad: Why is that machine beeping?
Son: And now Ovi’s gone. And I missed him.
Dad: You know I can hear you right?
Brooks Laich: Millions of fans are suffering from #FOMOH: the fear of missing out on hockey.
[Ovechkin dramatically pulls on hospital drape to reveal himself.]
Alex Ovechkin: Don’t be one of them. Download NHL Gamecenter and get free premium upgrade. Only on Verizon.
Brooks Laich: Enjoy exclusives like live national games and NHL On The Fly.
Well done, boys. Ovi’s evil sounding english is the best.
