The guy’s a natural.
In “oh my God, end the fucking lockout already” news, Nike just released a video promoting their new holiday sportswear. The two-minute clip features Alex Ovechkin (looking more like JAWS from Bond than ever before) modeling super-tight Nike gear and answering personal questions.
Everything goes gr8 until Ovechkin starts blabbering on about his favorite color. Blue.
BLUE?! No, no, no, no Ovi. Red is your favorite color. It’s not Rock The Blue: it’s Rock The Red. Everyday that passes, I get more and more scared that Putin Dynamo Moscow fans have created some kind of brain-washing device to keep Ovechkin and Backstrom for themselves when the lockout ends. But that’s just silly. Hahahaha. [looks scared] …Right? Ugh.
Below the jump, check out the video, and Ovechkin’s full transcript, lovingly translated by RMNB’s Igor Kleyner.
