The Boston Bruins Bear and Each NHL Team's Funniest Local Commercial
The Boston Bruins have had a rather hilarious set of commercials running locally, including a bear going around the TD Garden giving rules.
Another one was a response to a video of a girl who kicked in part of a pillar at the Garden.
The commercials generally entail humorous situations appropriate for most teams' fans.
Other organizations have local commercials that are funny in their own way.
Did your school allow skate sharpeners in class?
What makes this commercial so great is that every hockey fan should follow the rule.
Oh, no big deal, Jason Pominville is just hanging out in this guy's store.
Last season the Flames held a contest called "Brand Your Passion" on Facebook. Fans could submit a 30-second commercial, the winner of which received $10,000 in addition to their commercial airing on Sportsnet during a game.
This didn't win, believe it or not.
This old commercial parodies a scene in The Matrix in which Keanu Reeves readies himself for a gunfight in a similar manner.
The Avs' funny local commercial was not all that great, but this one by ESPN was worth watching.
What are you doing?
Columbus Blue Jackets
The commercial was not meant to be funny, but the awkwardness of it makes R.J. Umberger's first bell ringing a little entertaining.
Detroit Red Wings
Nothing says hockey like candles in a locker room.
Once commercials reach a certain age, their "I'm from the wrong era" feel makes them humorous.
It would get her a five-game suspension in today's NHL.
Los Angeles Kings
They look ridiculous.
Well, so much for asking the roommate if it's okay to have guests over...
Something about Denis Savard and Coca-Cola somehow bringing him to the Canadiens.
It's a perfectly logical concept.
If anyone ever questions where you were, just meow after telling the truth.
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
SNY provides coverage of all New York-area sports teams, including the Islanders.
The commercial is based on a study that said watching sports can actually boost testosterone levels.
New York Rangers
Those look cool. Googling where a pair of Sasson jeans can be found is now a top priority.
Subway is an official sponsor of the team, leading to this great commercial.
For local matters, there is an awful old Tastykakes commercial that is worth a look, but this NHL spot is a classic that can't be ignored.
This is the happiest anyone has ever looked while eating a taco from Taco Bell.
What exactly was Max Talbot doing with his hands?
San Jose Sharks
The Sharks have a number of "He's a lousy ____ but he's a great hockey player" commercials, but this one features the team's toughest player being afraid of a raccoon.
St. Louis Blues
Not exactly a funny commercial, but that song is awful enough to ruin this commercial.
Tampa Bay Lightning
He might do a better job if he organized the desk a little better.
Toronto Maple Leafs
It would be pretty impressive to find a goal so ridiculous that it makes the goalie quit hockey and become a gardener.
If this was aired during the riots after Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, Vancouver probably would've looked at the screen and said, "Oh. Right, let's stop all this. Go flip that car back over and get some extinguishers to put out the fires."
