Today, though, we're not here to talk about the history of the Pelicans despite having over 100 years of history to boast. Instead we'll talk about the ridiculous commercials that you rarely see from a hockey team, let alone a European team. Courtesy of Ridiculously Entertaining Randomness' YouTube channel, here are a pile of commercials from the Pelicans to help ramp up the hype for the team! You might wonder who came up with these commercials after seeing them.
That coach seems to be a little over-the-top in his yelling, but I like the idea behind the commercials. The one with the player who throws the bodycheck on the zamboni? That's a fantastic idea! I'm just not sure that I'd want a coach who is screaming at the top of his lungs at his players.
The aim of these commercials is to have people talking about the Lahti Pelicans, and I'm pretty sure these commercials hit that mark. The problem is that people might be talking about them for the wrong reasons after seeing that coach. Overall, though, the Pelicans have some pretty humorous ideas when it comes to hockey, and I have to commend them for going outside the box in their commercial efforts!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
