With the Sochi Olympics less than two months away, Nike is upping their promotion game. A few weeks ago, they debuted their English “Play Russian” ad. Wednesday, Alex Ovechkin tweeted out a special Russian language version of the commercial, and this one features a lot more screen time for The Great Eight.
As translated by Fedor Fedin, Ovechkin says:
The winter is my home. When the world is shaking of the cold, I come out to play. This winter froze me so I’d become faster. It hit me so I’d hit harder. It gave me everything. And now it’s time to give it all of myself.
That’s poetic or something. On the heels of Ovechkin’s four-goal night, this is rather appropriate.
