More Video Greatness

After yesterday's viewing of the Battle of Ontario courtesy of Algonquin College's David N., HBIC is happy to feature another email from a reader who has a video for me to present. David N. deserves some kudos again for producing the Battle of Ontario video, but today's video, while a commercial, is actually pretty entertaining in its own right. I'll be upfront here in telling you that I was not solicited by Visa in any way to post this article or the video below, but I have to say that Visa is certainly doing well in the hockey-themed commercials in its time supporting the NHL.

Reader Mark B. sent me this short note, writing, "Thought you might like this funny NHL hockey video I found", so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. All I knew is that the preview window had a guy dressed in a Winnipeg Jets jersey in what appeared to be a small room. So, like any curious cat, I clicked play.
Hockey love does hurt when you realize that any loss by the Jets at this point in the season will put them in the same boat as the Maple Leafs and Canadiens - two teams already eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Jets have an extremely slim chance of making the playoffs and absolutely need help along the way, but there's still a chance. Any flame left burning is a chance that an inferno could catch.

If you want to have a chance to attend the first game of the Stanley Cup Final this year, make sure you head over to Visa's Hockey Love Hurts Facebook page. Throw a comment on the page, and let the people at Visa know how much you love hockey. If you have a Visa card - in other words, NOT ME - you will be entered to head off with ten of your closest pals to the opening game of this year's Stanley Cup Final. So get swiping that card!

Well done, Visa, on a solid hockey commercial. Again, I'm not a big believer in pushing the corporate agenda for anyone, but a good commercial deserves kudos. Kudos, Visa, on a job well done!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
